Current information surrounding Coronavirus may change and therefore Stogursey Parish Council recommend that everyone follow Public Health England (PHE) and NHS Guidance
Stay at home, save lives
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23 March 2020, we should all be staying at home and only going out for the following reasons:
- To buy food or medicine
- To attend health appointments
- To take exercise
- or for essential work that cannot be done at home.
If you have to go outside to do essential tasks or exercise, stay at least 2 metres (3 steps) away from other people and wash your hands as soon as you get home.
How to stop infection spreading
There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with coronavirus.
- wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
- always wash your hands when you get home or into work
- use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- wash your hands as soon as you get back home
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
- do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
Looking after your health and wellbeing
To help yourself stay well while you’re at home:
- stay in touch with family and friends over the phone or on social media
- try to keep yourself busy – you could try activities like cooking, reading, online learning and watching films
- do light exercise at home, or outside once a day
Stogursey is a civil parish and small village in the Quantock Hills in Somerset, England. At the time of the Domesday Book of 1086, the village was known simply as Stoke, meaning a farm or small settlement, usually one dependant on a larger settlement. The village is situated near the Bristol Channel, which bounds the parish on the north. The parish includes the village of Stolford, (which is believed to mean ‘The stile ford’ from the Old English stigol and ford), and the hamlets of Burton, Knighton, Shurton and Wick.
The villages of Stogursey in Somerset, UK and Lonlay L’Abbaye in Normandy, France have been successfully and closely twinned since 1985.
