Your District Councillors , Steven Lydon and Nigel Studdert-Kennedy, are both obliged

to follow the most recent government advice in order to reduce potential pressures on

The National Health Service. This does not mean that they are not able to render help,

Albeit remotely. Their telephone numbers and e-mail contacts are shown below together

With the number for the District Council.

N.B. Either one may respond on behalf of both to avoid duplication. We will continue to

Monitor services delivered by Stroud District Council. However as we are sure that you

will understand the focus must be on the over 70s and vulnerable members of the

Community. All necessary information will be shared between the two councillors.

For the present time It is expected that Councillors will use e-mail and telecommunications

To discharge their duties. All Meetings are cancelled until further notice

  1. The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of a new continuous cough and/or high temperature. If you have these symptoms, however mild, stay at home and do not leave your house for 7 days from when your symptoms started. You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.
  2. Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that's all you have access to.
  3. To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don't have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.
  4. Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.

At the current time and based on our understanding of what is known of COVID-19 and other similar respiratory viruses, it is likely that older people and those with chronic medical conditions may be vulnerable to severe disease. As more information emerges, recommendations may change.
