Advice from Somerset County Council states that we should self-isolate for 14 days if we or a member of our household starts to show Coronavirus symptoms of a new, continuous cough and/or a fever. Also, we can all play our part to reduce its spread through basic hygiene measures such as washing our hands regularly with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds, using a tissue when coughing then binning it, wiping down objects and surfaces regularly and avoiding touching our face, particularly our eyes, mouth and nose. Further information can be found at the NHS website here:
A number of voluntary groups have been set up to offer assistance in the crisis, including one in Bridgwater - Coronavirus Community Help Bridgwater - which can be contacted via their Facebook page.
If you have any concerns about your own welfare, or that of a family member, friend or neigbour, please contact any member of the Parish Council for guidance.
