How to wash your hands

 

Dear Belmont Rural Parish Parishioners,

Following government advice issued on 16 March 2020 and out of concern for the safety of our Parishioners and Parish Council, all meetings are suspended for the foreseeable future.
If you have any concerns that you think the Parish Council should be made aware of please contact the Parish Clerk by emailing clerk@belmontrural-pc.gov.uk

To help stop the spread of the virus please do the following:

  • Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
  • Put used tissues in a bin with a lid on immediately after use and wash your hands afterwards.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
  • If you are over 70 or in the vulnerable group (defined as needing a flu jab by your GP or Health Care Professional) stay in your own home to isolate yourself until at least 12 June 2020 (this may be extended). Everybody else, not showing symptoms, should limit contact with others by staying at home as much as possible and working from home where possible. If you have to go out then practice Social Distancing by staying 6 feet or 2 meters away from everybody else especially if indoors.

Remember, you may not be showing any symptoms but still could be carrying the virus. Protect yourself, protect others, protect everybody.  

What to do if you have symptoms
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms.
This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

Further detailed home isolation guidance is available at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-with-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection and is a recommended read if you need to isolate. 

Updated information is available at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public

We understand that at this unprecedented time that you may be worried and feel challenged but this is also a time to come together and support one another, especially the most vulnerable in our communities. If you know someone who may need help near you and you are able to offer it why not drop a note through their door with your details on, remember, people may be feeling very lonely and a phone call may be all that's needed to keep their spirits up.

Further support is available by contacting the Herefordshire Council Talk Community team by calling 01432 260027 or email talkcommunitycovidresponse@herefordshire.go.uk

We wish you and your family well in this difficult period.
