Coronavirus advice in Devon
Stay at home | Protect the NHS | Save lives
We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
- stay at home as much as possible
- work from home if you can
- limit contact with other people
- keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
- wash your hands regularly
Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
Read more about what you can and cannot do on the GOV.UK website.
Test and trace service
The government is introducing this service to help return life more to normal, in a way that is safe and protects social care and the NHS. The service will allow us to trace the spread of the virus and isolate new infections and play a vital role in giving us early warning if the virus is increasing again, locally or nationally.
