We understand that residents may have concerns about coronavirus. The situation is changing by the day, so please visit GOV.UK for information about the virus, the current situation in the UK and the latest ‘stay at home’ advice.
Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a persistent cough that may progress to pneumonia causing breathing difficulties.

It is thought that the virus is spread on close contact. Handwashing and carefully using and disposing of tissues are simple but effective measures that help to control the transmission of germs.
