Have you been told that you need to self-isolate? Do you need some support?
As you know, the UK could be significantly affected by COVID-19. The most up-to-date advice for anyone who has recently travelled abroad or who is experiencing a cough, or a fever, or a shortness of breath can be found at www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19
There is the possibility that over the coming weeks some of us will be advised to self-isolate as a precautionary measure.
JINNY BROCKWAY & CORINNE LEONARD has agreed to coordinate members of WEST KNOYLE who are prepared to support people who have been identified by the NHS as having COVID-19, or those who have been told to isolate themselves by staying indoors, and who may need help.
If you have been diagnosed or told to isolate by the NHS and you need help with, for example, essential shopping or collecting medicines, contact JINNY or CORINNE using the details found below.
You are not alone; a member of our local community coronavirus group will then contact you to try to provide support from within the road.
This is not an alternative to the NHS or social services; it will simply be WEST KNOYLE residents looking after each other.

PHE has advised people who are self-isolating to do what they can to avoid visitors to their home and any deliveries of groceries, medications or other shopping to be left at the door so please ensure that when you are providing support this advice is followed.
If you would be prepared to help a householder in this way, please let JINNY BROCKWAY know so that we can increase the number of volunteers. Thank you for all your support.
