COVID-19 update (13 March 2020)

13 March 2020

Yesterday the government announced that they are moving from the containment to the delay phase of its plan to tackle coronavirus. This aims to delay and lower the peak impact of the virus.

 

CCG intranet pages have now been updated to reflect this current advice, including the new advice below:  

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Please continue to check the intranet page as we will keep this up to date with the latest advice and what we all need to do to support our organisation.

Please remember that the previous campaign on the importance of handwashing is still relevant, and vital. We all need to continue washing our hands regularly, for 20 seconds. This will help protect those who are more vulnerable from this virus.

You can find further information both on the intranet and via the below links:
