Coronavirus (COVID-19): information

Friday 20 March 2020

Public Health England has reported a number of cases of Coronavirus in the UK and it has been confirmed that Kensington and Chelsea now has 55 cases.  Together with the Government and NHS, we have plans in place to manage the situation as it evolves.

The latest Government advice is that if you experience symptoms of Coronavirus (a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature meaning you feel hot to touch on your chest or back), you should stay at home for 14 days. If anyone in your household experiences symptoms of coronavirus you should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms.

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days. If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

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.

To protect yourself and others, please follow the NHS advice on how to avoid catching and spreading coronavirus (social distancing).
