Help to stop Coronavirus spreading

To protect yourself and others, when you leave home you must:

  • wash hands - keep washing your hands regularly
  • cover face - wear a face covering over your nose and mouth in enclosed spaces
  • make space - stay at least a metre away from people not in your household

If you are feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days.

For more information, the government have published frequently asked questions outlining what you can and can't do, you might also be interested in the information produced by Doncaster CCG on Shielding and Support.

Please volunteer to support the approved UK coronavirus vaccine studies. Researchers particularly welcome people from all parts of society, especially those who are more likely to benefit from a vaccine, including the over 65s, frontline health and social care workers, and those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds:


Coronavirus testing and tracing

Everyone in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland who is showing coronavirus symptoms is eligible to book a swab test to find out if they have the virus use the link below or ring 119. If you don’t have Covid-19 symptoms and you are trying to book a test, do not come forwards for a test – you could be taking a test away from someone who really needs it. This is increasingly important as we head into Autumn and Winter and more people will get colds and the flu.
