Public Health England, Northamptonshire County Council's Public Health team and the local NHS are working closely together in Northamptonshire to respond to the local impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

​Health advice

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

  • Stay 2 metres (6 feet) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
