Information from Cambs County Council regarding Coronavirus

Written on Friday 13th March 2020

Dear colleagues, community leaders and volunteers

We understand that coronavirus is generating a great deal of concern. While for many people it will be a mild illness, for older people and those with underlying health conditions it can be a more serious illness and we all need to work together to protect these more vulnerable members of our communities. To help stop the spread of coronavirus we’ve created a campaign web page from which you can download a range of materials to share (posters, images, social media posts etc. including posters translated into a range of languages). These encourage people to do the most simple and effective thing that can stop the spread of the virus, which is regularly washing your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.

Today the Government also announced an update on its approach, asking people to stay at home for 7 days if they have either a high temperature or a new continuous cough. This update can be viewed here.

My regards

Dr Liz Robin
Director of Public Health
Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council
