A call to arms to all readers:
Trusted news from OnTheWight needs your support

Government Covid-19 guidance
Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently (video tips).

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service that can tell if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

If you live alone stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
– a high temperature
– a new continuous cough

If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.

This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

The Government has decided that the NHS will not be testing people who are self-isolating with mild symptoms.

Well done for highlighting this. Hopefully the police will catch the vandals in due course.
