You must stay at home. This is the single most important action we can all take to protect the NHS and save lives. You must not leave your home unless necessary.

Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household or bubble.

Testing & the vaccine

Most people with the virus have at least one of these symptoms: a fever, a new, continuous cough, loss of sense of taste or smell. If you are unsure use the NHS Coronavirus online symptom checker, or call 111. 

The NHS is coordinating the Covid-19 vaccination. When it's your turn the NHS will invite you for your vaccine. We kindly ask that you do not call your GP, local hospital or other NHS service.

Clinically vulnerable & mental health

If you or your child has been identified as clinically extremely vulnerable, you will receive a letter from the government addressed personally to you. This letter is to let you know about the new guidance that will be in place for clinically extremely vulnerable people.

If you need mental health support please see our mental health information where you can find a wealth of information from mental health wellbeing guides to mental health safety plans.

Business Support 

All non-essential businesses must close due to a new national lockdown. Further information on support will be added as more information becomes available.
