Coronavirus Update – 17/03/20

As you may have seen on the news, the advice around self-isolation has changed.  For clarity the new advice is:

If any member of a family show symptoms the advice is that the whole household should self-isolate for 14 days. This is to help to protect others in the community.

Women who are pregnant have been advised to avoid social contact where possible.

An announcement about self-isolation for particular groups of people is expected later this week; these groups include:

  • Those who are pregnant
  • Have serious underlying health conditions
  • Are aged over 70.

Schools are to stay open

Thank you for your continued co-operation.
