Coronavirus Information

Stay alert

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
    limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

Local Advice, Help & Support

Duncan Baker’s (our local MP) team has been collating details of individuals and organisations, across the constituency, who are offering practical help to the vulnerable, housebound, and self-isolating. Whilst many will have families, partners, and friends to help, there is concern that we get the right help to where it’s needed, and that we do not forget those who may be lonely or struggling with the present situation.
