Coronavirus Advice & Information


This page has been set up to share information and advice related to the Coronavirus outbreak. Please take note of the following as you can help to slow the spread of Cornavirus by ensuring you and your children follow these general principles to stop the spread of the respiratory virus:


  • Wash you hands often, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren't available. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Keep your child home from school unless it is absolutely essential that they attend (a place can only be available if you meet the eligibility criteria). 
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you are worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 - don't go to your GP or other healthcare centre.


The most up-to-date guidance explains that everybody should stay at home unless:


  • You need to go outside for food or medicine/health reasons
  • You need to attend work that is absolutely essential and cannot be done from home
  • You are exercising (maximum once per day)


The symptoms of Coronavirus are:


  • a high temperature (37.8%+)
  • a new, continuous cough


If anybody in your household has displayed symptoms then it is important that everybody in the household stays at home in 'isolation' for 14 days (even if you are eligible to leave usually). 


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.


School is closed and you SHOULD NOT attend (unless you meet the eligibility criteria) until further notice. The latest guidance an information is available from the Government website:
