The Government has announced its ‘COVID-19 Response - Spring 2021’ which provides a roadmap out of the current lockdown in England and sets out how the government will continue to protect and support citizens across the UK.

Click on the link for latest Covid 19 advice from Government.

And here is the latest Covid 19 advice from u3a HQ.

The basic advice is:
Wash Hands - Cover Face - Make Space, let fresh air in - Get Tested

Everyone is vulnerable, but people over 70 and those with underlying health conditions remain at increased risk and should be particularly mindful of these instructions.

There is also useful guidance on dealing with the psychological aspects of isolation and maintaining wellbeing, such as structuring your day, keeping in touch with others, eating properly, taking exercise, keeping your mind active and managing your media and information intake – in other words, don’t be dragged down by the torrent of Coronavirus bad news.

Here are some useful websites for authoritative information and support: – updates on Government activity and advice on how to protect yourself and others. - essential health-related guidance, including looking after your physical and mental health during the lockdown period. – for medical enquiries, including advice on what to do if you have Coronavirus symptoms. There is also a special 111 telephone helpline for those without internet access. Rochdale Council website with information on how to protect yourself, help for vulnerable people, health and wellbeing resources, and things to do whilst at home.

If you are unable to access these yourselves, friends and family may be able to help.

There is plenty of information and support out there, so there’s no need to feel you are on your own.
These details will be updated as circumstances change.
