If you think you or a member of your household has the symptoms (a fever and/or a new and persistent dry cough) follow NHS advice. The advice is to stay at home for 7 days. If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms. If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days. If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible. 

If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse or your symptoms do not get  better after 7 days use the coronavirus advice service at https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 self-diagnostic tool. Latest guidance is Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Covid 19 – We think it would be a great idea for Hail Weston to have its own Mutual Aid group – so we can support each other during these uncertain and worrying times. We are very keen that everybody in the village who could do with a ‘hand’ either practically, (e.g. shopping), or emotionally, (e.g. having a chat), experiences our famed community spirit!  see more here: Hail Weston Mutual Aid
