Coronavirus (COVID-19)

For residents in Kent, we face a huge challenge from coronavirus and its continuing impact on our lives and work.

 

We are committed to ensuring we continue to deliver services - though we recognise that in these challenging times, some of these will be affected as we follow government advice.

We appreciate many residents will have questions and we will try and answer as many of these as possible. Please see below. 

Prevent coronavirus spreading

There are things we can all do to help stop viruses like coronavirus spreading:

  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze

  • put used tissues in the bin immediately

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available

  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

If you are worried about your symptoms, use the online NHS 111 coronavirus service or call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP, pharmacy, hospital or other healthcare setting.
