Updates issued by Sue Reece (870618) and Mick Fletcher (870531) on behalf of the parish council:

Until now Somerset has not been seriously affected by the coronavirus outbreak, but the signs are that we are now beginning to catch up with the rest of the country.   It seems a good time therefore to summarise the information from NHS England about the symptoms of coronavirus and what to do if you feel unwell.  The information in the attached sheet has been specially prepared for us by a qualified doctor and emphasises the need to self-isolate if it seems you might have the disease or have been exposed to someone who has.  We would remind everyone that we have sufficient volunteers available to ensure that anyone needing to self-isolate should have no need to leave the house other than for emergency medical attention.

As well as the physical consequences of the disease, self-isolation and anxiety about the illness and its consequences can give rise to mental health issues.  We are therefore also drawing attention to a helpful guidance note from the government on supporting children’s and young people’s mental health during the current crisis.   It is available here  and we can make summaries available for those not on-line should they so request.
