COVID-19 guidance and support

Staying safe

To protect yourself and others, you must follow the Government guidance. If you have a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss of sense of taste or smell, you may have the virus. You will need to self-isolate immediately and arrange to get a test. This means staying at home and arranging to have food and supplies delivered. You must not go to work and must not have visitors in your home.

If someone you live with has the virus, you must self-isolate and follow the advice on GOV.UK . To book a test, call 119 or visit NHS.UK .

Reduce the risk

You can reduce the risk of catching the virus by taking some simple precautions. When you go out, social distance from other people. This means leave a 2m space between you and anyone who does not live with you. If you go into a shop or enclosed public space, you should wear a face mask unless you are exempt.

You should also wash or sanitise your hands frequently, but particularly before and after eating or touching your head or face.

Keeping North East Lincolnshire safe and open

We are working with our partners to help our communities to adapt and reopen our area, living alongside the virus.

There are plans in place to minimise the impact of the virus on everyday life, reduce the risk of a localised outbreak of the virus, and contain any cases in our area. To do this, we have an Outbreak Control Plan (PDF, 774KB) .

For more information on testing, including who is eligible for a test in our area and how to book a test, visit the Humber Local Resilience Forum .

Here you will find out how to stay safe and get the support you need.
