I'm self-isolating or clinically extremely vulnerable and need support
Following the Prime Ministers’ announcement that the legal requirement to self-isolate ended on Thursday 24 February 2022.
The Self Isolation scheme is now closed, no further applications will be accepted.
If you've tested positive, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have been asked to self-isolate please check the NHS website for more information on when to self isolate.
You might be able to find support locally if:
- you've been told you are clinically extremely vulnerable
- you're self-isolating at home because you or someone in your household has tested positive for coronavirus or is displaying symptoms
Most people in these situations will be able to arrange for help with food, shopping, prescriptions or other urgent supplies through their family, friends and neighbours.
We've seen lots of great work out in the community and we need this to continue to help us all get through Covid-19.
However, if you do need support, follow the links below to find a local group or organisation offering help.
If you're in need of support please call the Covid-19 Community team on 01582 548972 (9am to 5pm weekdays, except Wednesday 10am to 5pm).
The government is urging all those over 16 years old to download the NHS COVID-19 app to help control the spread of coronavirus and protect themselves and their loved ones as case numbers rise.
The app is an important tool to work alongside traditional contact tracing to help reduce the spread of the virus.
You can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play by selecting the following buttons.
