We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
The Government has advised the public to cover their faces in enclosed public spaces. We would therefore request all patients and visitors to wear a suitable face covering when visiting the practice. The Government has also urged the public not to buy medical grade/surgical masks so they can be saved for frontline health and care workers, and instead make theirown face coverings at home. The key points are that it should cover the mouth and nose and be washed regularly. Face coverings are not a replacement for social distancing and regular handwashing which remain the most important actions for the protection against Covid-19.
