There is a wealth of information - and misinformation - out there about Coronavirus and Covid-19. Here we have pulled together some of the most useful links to up-to-date information from Public Health England and Wiltshire Council.

NHS advice on Covid-19

If you have a new, continuous cough, a high temperature or lose your sense of smell, the Government has advised that you stay at home for 7 days. People living with you in your household will need to self-isolate for 14 days. 

You should ask for a test to find out if it is coronavirus, so that the infection can be tracked and traced. 

If your symptoms are mild you don't need to contact the NHS for medical help. But if your symptoms are getting worse and you reach a point where you would normally call for medical care, you should ring 111 for help.

If you are feeling anxious about coronavirus: It's completely understandable to be worried about the impact coronavirus may have on you or those you care about. Try to stay calm and follow the official advice from the Government. The charity Mind has information you might find helpful.
