The outbreak of coronavirus, officially named Covid-19, continues to be managed by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and Public Health England (PHE). Local Authorities are following their expert guidance and are working with the NHS to communicate with specific settings as and when guidance is produced.
For latest information and advice for the general public go to the NHS pages which contains links to the GOV.UK pages.
A Compassionate Community telephone hub to help vulnerable residents and people who are most in need with food, mental health, wellbeing and welfare has been launched. BaNES residents can telephone 0300 2470050 for advice on a range of critical support during the Coronavirus pandemic. The line operates Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
Naturally, the safety and wellbeing of everyone in the Parish is important to us. We are aware of a number of local groups and businesses offering help to Parishioners who are elderly, self-isolating, or struggling in any other way while the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues.
