COVID-19 disease

COVID-19 is the name given to a coronavirus first identified in 2019 which causes a variety of symptoms, the most common of these are dry persistent cough, breathlessness, fever and/or loss of sense of taste or smell. Like most viral illnesses the majority of people who catch the disease recover but for those who are elderly or have other illnesses or weakened immune systems it can be more dangerous. People can transmit the virus even if they don’t have any symptoms which has made stopping the virus very difficult.

To protect people and the NHS, the Government put in place measures to try and prevent the spread of COVID-19 which include social distancing, wearing face masks, avoiding crowded places and self-isolation for anyone with symptoms. More detailed information can be found on the NHS Inform website.

If you are concerned about symptoms of COVID please call 111, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can arrange to have a test done locally by contacting NHS Inform.

Up-to-date information about rates of COVID-19 locally can be found at this website:
