Covid 19 Update
Published: 18 March 2017
The situation regarding Covid 19 (Coronavirus) is fast moving and regular updates are available on the following website https://bit.ly/2U5Bpf4
The Council would encourage residents to consider any vulnerable neighbours they may have in their locality, as it is these people who are the most severely impacted during adverse events, and where they may be able to help.
Advice that becomes available will be posted here accordingly. The latest advice from Surrey County Council in relation to the situation in Surrey can be found here.
While this national emergency on the spread and infection of the coronavirus exists, voluntary community agencies along with the various Churches within the Camberley and Bagshot aeras are setting up a central number to offer assistance and support to residents who are self isolating at this time.
It is hoped that where possible neighbours, friends and family are providing the support and assistance to anyone who has to self-isolate. However for some of the community, who do not have a local network, self-isolation means just that. It is for this reason that local volunteer and church groups have organised to provide support for vulneralbe members of the community.
For anyone requiring support while self-isolating such as shopping, picking up medication, essential transport or just someone to talk to then please contact 01276 66798.
The line is open 9am-5pm, 7 days a week.
