West Sussex County Council are reminding residents to continue with the following:
Wash your hands with soap and water more often than usual, for at least 20 seconds, using hand sanitiser if soap and water are not available.
You should always wash your hands or use hand sanitiser after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, before you eat or handle food, or when you get to work or arrive home.
Keep two metres away from people, or at least one metre when you can take other precautions, such as wearing a face covering, or not sitting face-to-face with someone.
If you can, wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
You must wear a face covering at all times on public transport, when attending a hospital as a visitor or outpatient and when in shops and supermarkets.
Face coverings do not replace social distancing.
Test and trace
- a new continuous cough
- a high temperature
- a loss of or change in your sense of taste and smell.
If you do develop these symptoms, however mild, or you have received a positive COVID-19 test result, you should immediately self-isolate at home for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. All other household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days.
If you are self-isolating and in need of support, get in touch with our community hub.
