Message from Simon Hoare MP

‘It is important in this uncertain time that we follow the advice provided by the Government and Health experts. This advice is likely to change daily based on the evolving situation.

As per the current advice, the most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work. This should be done as infrequently as possible. When outside it is important to stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people.

When you return home, wash your hands immediately, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Make sure you cough or sneeze into a tissue, put it in a bin and wash your hands. 

The Government has announced new measures to help tackle the spread of Coronavirus. This is called social distancing and is particularly important for people who:

– are 70 or over

– have a long-term condition

– are pregnant

– have a weakened immune system’
