Avoid Calling 111
If you think you may be suffering from Coronavirus symptoms, do not attend your GP or go to A & E.
Instead, use the 111 Online System – click here.
The latest Government advice tells us:
– If anyone in your household shows symptoms, the whole household should isolate for 14 days.
– If you have mild or moderate symptoms, you should aim to manage your self at home without calling 111 or visiting the GP or A&E.
– If anyone symptoms develop into something more serious, you should contact the NHS in the normal ways.
Proper & Regular Handwashing
Always wash your hands with antibacterial soap and water using the NHS recommended method below. You should continue to wash your hands after using the toilet and before meals. You should also wash your hands after a cough or sneeze; when arriving at a new place (school for example), after any sporting activities and before you leave the house.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth if you haven’t washed your hands.
Do not share items that come into contact with your mouth: cups and bottles for example.
If you feel unwell, do not share items like bedding, towels, stationary etc.
Catch It, Bin It, Kill It
If you need to cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue. Then dispose of the tissue immediately and wash your hands straight away.
If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow and then wash your hands and elbow.
