Coronavirus Guidance Worcestershire

The Coronavirus Worcestershire (COVID-19) outbreak presents a significant challenge to businesses around the globe. The UK government, including the health and social care systems, have planned extensively over the years for an event like this, and the UK is therefore well prepared to respond in a way that offers substantial protection.

Businesses in the UK who have been massively affected from the statements we are hearing from local and global businesses they are all feeling the effect. Or businesses feel they are likely to be affected by Coronavirus and are urged to seek advice and the government has supplied a series of resources to inform employers on the latest developments and advise on protecting themselves and their employees.

In most cases, Covid-19 is mild, but everyone should remain vigilant and carry on with good personal hygiene measures, which include:

Giving your hands a good wash with soap and water is the most effective action you can take (but hand gels can be a good substitute).

Maintaining personal hygiene when coughing or sneezing is also important – use a tissue rather than your hands and then throw it away.

Using cleaning wipes to give your keyboard, desk, phone etc. the once-over on a regular basis.

If someone is feeling unwell and has the symptoms set out on the public health website they should not go to their doctor or a hospital. They should ring 111 to get further advice. Keep up to date with advice via the NHS coronavirus web pages
