Coronavirus: Health and wellbeing advice

The coronavirus outbreak is a rapidly evolving situation so it is important to make sure you stay up to date with the latest official advice.

The NHS is extremely well-prepared and used to managing infections and the situation is being led at national level by Public Health England.

Breckland Council has been meeting with other Norfolk Resilience Forum partners - such as other councils, NHS, and Police - to discuss the potential risks and impacts for our county and are well-prepared to respond to any potential incident.

Along with other councils in the county, we wrote to all of the district's households at the end of March with advice about staying safe and the support available to residents and businesses.

Breckland Council will continue to review the situation and are following alladvice from Public Health England.

If you have any health concerns, check the NHS website for up-to-date advice and guidance, and for regular updates on travel information, symptoms and precautionary measures. If you are concerned that you are unwell, the NHS advice line is 111.

Public Health England recommends that everyone should maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene - there areNHS guidelines on good hand hygiene.

Whether you are self-isolating for medical needs or socially distancing, being at home all day can be stressful. It is important that we stay physically and emotionally well during this time. View our guide of ten things you can do to promote your overall wellbeing.

If you are in need of food or medicines delivery or a welfare call, or are able to volunteer your time to help those in need, more information is available on our volunteering page.
