The situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a fast-paced and constantly evolving situation. As such it is important that you and your family are able to follow the latest information and advice.
The prime minister announced on 31 October 2020 that new national restrictions will come into force in England from 5 November. Guidance from the government has been published here.
The UK government, Public Health England (PHE) and the NHS are the best sources of information for individuals, families, communities and businesses.
The Borough Council (Cheshire East Council) also provides up-to-date information on its website.
Dr Matt Tyrer, the Acting Director of Public Health (Cheshire East Council) said that the Borough Council is working with its partners to ensure the protection of the public and continues to work closely with Public Health England (PHE) and NHS England to ensure that it is up-to-date with the very latest advice and that best practice is observed.
Prevention is always better than cure and as with the seasonal flu virus, the most effective way for people to protect themselves from Covid-19 is to adopt good respiratory and hand hygiene to prevent the risk of infection and a ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach to coughs and sneezes.
People are also advised to avoid contact with anyone who is unwell and showing symptoms of Coronavirus.
As the situation develops, guidance is updated daily.
