The Parish Council has offered to help any resident in the village who is in self isolation by offering to collect and door step deliver any prepaid groceries and medication.
Following the announcement on Thursday 12th March the UK government has introduced additional measures which are designed to help contain the coronavirus. This will be for people who develop a new continuous cough and/or high temperature they will need to self-isolate. The advice is, if you have symptoms of coronavirus infection (COVID-19), however mild, do not leave your home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. This means you should remain in your home. Do not go to work, school, or public areas, and do not use public transport or taxis.
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, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
We realise that most people will have their own plans in place to deal with this, others may not.
However, if a resident finds they have to self-isolate for seven days or longer and he/she does not have any plans in place, the Parish Council has set up a scheme to pick up essential items, such as food or prescriptions, so that we may be able to help residents of Dennington who develop symptoms and who have to self-isolate.
Under this scheme, it may be possible for Councillors/volunteers to help by collecting and delivering to your home any pre-paid essential items, such as food and prescriptions from the nearby food store and doctor’s surgery. Please feel free to contact the allocated Councillor/volunteer for your part of the village from the list below and discuss with them how they may be able to help you.
Councillors/volunteers who are making themselves available can be contacted for your part of the Village from the list below:
