Although we are slowly getting back to normal, there are frequent reminders in the news that coronavirus has not gone away, and we may still be subject to further restrictions especially as we move into autumn.

Along with more specific government legislation and guidance, there are things we can all continue to do help limit the spread of the virus:

  • maintain at least 2m social distancing
  • wearing a mask in enclosed public areas
  • wash or disposing of masks, tissues, gloves etc safely
  • avoid touching eyes, mouth and nose
  • continuing to frequently wash hands with warm soapy water for 20 seconds.

There are also things that we can do to boost our health and wellbeing and to be more prepared for the future whatever it brings. Find out more by following these NHS links:
