Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Specialists from Public Health England (PHE) are working with Slough Borough Council and NHS colleagues following confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Public Health England is contacting people who had close contact with the latest confirmed cases of COVID-19. Close contacts will be given health advice about symptoms and emergency contact details to use if they become unwell in the 14 days after contact with a confirmed case. This tried and tested method will ensure we are able to minimise any risk to them and the wider public.

We would like to reassure people we are working with health colleagues to do everything we can to stop the virus spreading and ensure the people of Slough are protected.

If you have not been contacted by Public Health England as a close contact of the confirmed cases you do not need to take any action at this time.

In the meantime we would like to stress the importance of usual winter illness prevention:
◾wash your hands often - with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport
◾avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
◾avoid close contact with people who are sick
◾if you feel unwell, stay at home, do not attend work or school
◾cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
◾clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home and work environment
◾if you are worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
