Two further cases of Covid-19 confirmed in Gloucestershire

Public Health England (PHE) has confirmed there are now six cases of Covid-19 in the county. It is receiving all necessary support and advice from PHE.

The details are as follows:

• Two, linked cases in Tetbury

• Two, linked cases in the Cheltenham area

• One case in the Tewksbury area

• One case in the Gloucester area

To respect patient confidentiality, no further details about the individuals will be provided.

For all cases, PHE carry out a robust process of contacting people who may have had close contact with the confirmed cases.

Close contacts are given health advice about symptoms and emergency contact details to use if they become unwell in the 14 days after they had contact with the confirmed case.

This tried and tested method will ensure that any risk to them is minimised and the wider public is protected.

In most cases, Covid-19 is mild but everyone should remain vigilant and carry on with good washing of hands and related personal hygiene measures, which include:

Giving your hands a good wash with soap and water is the most effective action you can take (but hand gels can be a good substitute).

Maintaining personal hygiene when coughing or sneezing is also important - use a tissue rather your hands and then throw it away.

It is good general practice to use cleaning wipes to give your keyboard, desk, phone etc. the once over on a regular basis.

If someone is feeling unwell and has the symptoms set out on the public health website they should not go to their Drs or a hospital. They should visit the NHS' 111 website or ring them on 111 to get further advice.

Keep up to date with advice via the NHS' corona virus web pages.
