Mayday Trust is following official guidance about Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We appreciate that this situation is evolving and will continue to focus on supporting the people we work with, whilst ensuring the Mayday team are kept up to date with the latest official guidelines and advice.
The latest Government and NHS advice is to stay at home for at least seven days if you have either:
- A high temperature
- A new, continuous cough
Please note, you do not need to go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital, and you do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home. The NHS does not need to test you for Coronavirus if you are staying at home (also called ‘self-isolating’).
When to call 111:
- If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- Your condition gets worse
- Your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
How to avoid catching or spreading COVID-19
- Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
- Always wash your hands when you get home or into work
- Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- Put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
- Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
- Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
