Lavey Community Response to COVID-19

With the spread of Coronavirus (Covid 19) happening throughout the country, so too is the heightening concern of many who may be worried of what the coming period may mean to them, and how it may affect their lives.

Lavey Community has always been about looking out and caring for one another and especially in a time of need. Under the present circumstances, particularly for the elderly or those who may be unable to leave their own homes, we could be entering a period of significant apprehension and worry. Lavey community is only too willing to rally around and provide support in these extraordinary times of need.

The Lavey Community Support Group have established a team of volunteers
comprised from members of the Parish Community organisations who will be available to provide assistance in whatever way they can for those isolated in their own homes as a result of the coronavirus e.g shopping, collecting prescriptions etc or simply just for someone to chat to.

So please do not hesitate to call any of our volunteers listed on the numbers below;

If you have a high temperature and/or a persistent cough stay at
home for seven days. Do not go to your GP surgery, pharmacy or
hospital.

Call your GP if:
• you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home;
• your conditions get worse;
• your symptoms do not get better after seven days.

If it is a medical emergency and you need to call an ambulance, dial
999 and inform the operator of your symptoms. Like seasonal flu,
the same public health advice applies for COVID-19 (Coronavirus):
if you cough or sneeze, use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose,
throw it away carefully after use, and wash your hands. Once flu and
similar infectious viruses begin to spread, the main method that can
prevent further spread, is good personal hygiene. Washing your hands
regularly will help prevent flu and other viruses spreading.
