“Headteacher”

Four new cases of Coronavirus have been confirmed in Gloucestershire today.

It brings the total number of cases of COVID-19 in the county to 10.

The four new cases includes one in the Stroud area, one in the Cheltenham area, one in Tewkesbury area and one in the Cotswolds area.

There remain no confirmed cases in the Forest of Dean area.

How to prevent it

This is the advice from Public Health England:

For all cases, PHE carry out a robust process of contacting people who may have had close contact with the confirmed cases. Close contacts are given health advice about symptoms and emergency contact details to use if they become unwell in the 14 days after they had contact with the confirmed case. This tried and tested method will ensure that any risk to them is minimised and the wider public is protected.

In most cases, Covid-19 is mild but everyone should remain vigilant and carry on with good washing of hands and related personal hygiene measures, which include:

Giving your hands a good wash with soap and water is the most effective action you can take (but hand gels can be a good substitute).

  • Maintaining personal hygiene when coughing or sneezing is also important – use a tissue rather your hands and then throw it away.
  • It is good general practice to use cleaning wipes to give your keyboard, desk, phone etc. the once over on a regular basis.

If someone is feeling unwell and has the symptoms set out on the public health website they should not go to their Drs or a hospital. They should visit the NHS’ 111 website or ring them on 111 to get further advice.

Keep up to date with advice via the NHS’ corona virus web pages.
