Important information from Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council

Stop the spread. You must:

Cover your face – wear a face covering over your nose and mouth when sharing a car or taxi or in places like shops and supermarkets or when using public transport.

Wash your hands regularly

Avoid close contact with others – stay at least a metre away from people not from your household.

Gatherings and parties

You must not meet with people from other households socially in groups of more than six. This will apply indoors and outdoors, including in private homes.

COVID-19 secure venues, such as places of worship, restaurants and hospitality venues, can still host larger numbers in total but groups of up to six must not mix or form larger groups. This rule will not apply to individual households or support bubbles of more than six who will still be able to gather together.

Education and work settings are unaffected, and organised team sports will still be able to proceed, as will weddings for up to 15 guests and funerals up to 30.

Get a test

Testing is available locally. Anyone with any of the coronavirus symptoms, however mild, should stay at home and book a test online or by calling 119.

What are coronavirus sysmptoms?

A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

Self-isolating

If you have been advised to isolate because you have been in close contact with somebody who has symptoms or has tested positive, you should remain at home. This means you are not able to leave home to go to work, to go out shopping or take your children to school. You will need to make arrangements for family or friends to help out. You should not socialise or have any visitors to your home.

If you have symptoms yourself, or have had a positive test result, you and your close contacts all need to self-isolate immediately.

Support at home

Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 can get support at home by calling a nurse on 01642 033735.

You will be provided with equipment that goes onto your finger for you to check your own pulse and oxygen levels – all from the comfort of your home while you are self isolating.

You send the information to the nurses so they can monitor you at home. Call 01642 033735 for more information about the COVID-19 monitoring at home service.
