CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - PARISH INFORMATION

Coronavirus restrictions remain in force throughout the United Kingdom. Remember:

  • Only socialise indoors with people you live with or who are in your support bubble
  • Up to 6 people or 2 households can meet outside
  • Work from home if you can and minimise travel
  • If you have symptoms get a test and stay at home

For detailed guidance on what we can and can't do, testing and self-isolating, vaccination, travel and other areas affected by the pandemic, please visit the UK Government Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance page at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

Every one of us has a role to play to stop coronavirus spreading in our communities.

If you have symptoms:

  • self-isolate - stay at home for ten days
  • get tested - call or book online for a local test
  • keep others safe - don’t socialise, don’t go to work, don’t go shopping or mix with anyone outside your household

If you don't have symptoms:

About 1 in 3 people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still infect others. Getting tested regularly is the only way to know if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.

Anyone in England may now get free regular, rapid tests for COVID-19. To find out more about how to get a free test, visit https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing/regular-rapid-coronavirus-tests-if-you-do-not-have-symptoms/

When you go out for specific purposes, remember:

  • HANDS - wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
  • FACE - wear a face covering
  • SPACE - stay two metres apart
  • FRESH AIR - Meet outdoors

If you have any of these symptoms, no matter how mild, get tested straight away:

  • high temperature
  • cough
  • loss of taste or smell

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
