We know what a massive impact Coronavirus has made all around the world - cases in Derbyshire are coming down, but we’re definitely not out of the woods yet! 

In association with Derbyshire County Council; please remember it’s still REALLY important to keep following restrictions and instructions.

Please STAY AT HOME as much as possible - you may need to leave home to go to work or for other essential reasons, such as caring for somebody or fleeing domestic abuse. 

If you do need to leave the house - remember: Hands, Face, Space

That means washing your hands regularly, wearing a face covering, and staying away from other people. 

Please remember if you, or anyone in your household has symptoms, you must ALL self-isolate for 10 days immediately.  This means, you can’t go to work, the shops or out for daily exercise. 

The 3 main symptoms are: 

  • a high temperature 
  • a new, continuous cough 
  • a loss of, or change to your sense of smell or taste

You can then book a test by ringing the NHS on 119, or online at GOV.UK.  Please don’t go out of the house while you wait for your test results. 

If your test is positive, you and your household should continue to isolate.  If the test is negative, and you don’t develop Covid symptoms and feel well, you can stop isolating.  Everyone in your household can also stop isolating, as long as they don’t have symptoms.

Let’s do this for Derbyshire.  Together we can beat this virus.  If you’re unclear about any of the guidance, please see GOV.UK
