If you need up to date guidance on how to self isolate or how to respond if you or someone in your household is unwell then please click the link here to go to the government website.
It is going to be quite lonely for some folks who are self isolating, and there is no risk to telephoning so please let’s remember to call the folk we know are in this position for a chat to help them feel less isolated and check they are ok.
Rod Shelton who lives locally has started an initiative called neighbourhood friends to help support the elderly who are keeping their distance to reduce their risks or those who are unwell or self isolating. How it works is people who want to help, write their telephone number on a bit of paper put it through the door of any neighbours they choose with an offer to collect shopping or prescriptions etc that could be dropped off to a doorstep.
