Information and Guidance

Covid-19 is an illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus. The symptoms are a cough, high temperature, and shortness of breath – although these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.
Follow the NHS’s coronavirus guidance on when to stay at home and for how long. The guidance also includes further information about coronavirus, and contains links to other useful information.
There is additional guidance and information for people identified as High Risk (shielded) by the NHS.
See also the government’s advice – Coronavirus: what you need to do. It includes information for businesses and schools, and about travel and much more.
Coronavirus presents us all with an unprecedented challenge. We’re working with neighbouring councils, public health organisations, and regional and national organisations to support the countrywide effort to address it.
Contact your local community group if you need help or want to volunteer to help.
