CV19 advice for communities. Video and audio files in various languages

Coronavirus, also know as COVID-19, is still in our community.

We’ve seen an increase in people testing positive for coronavirus or COVID-19 in Kirklees.

There are a few, very simple things you can do to make sure you don’t get the virus or spread it to others.

When you go out, stay at least 2 metres (or 3 steps) away from anyone you do not live with.

Don’t shake hands or share lifts in cars.

Avoid crowds, including large gatherings of friends or family. 

Wear something that covers your nose and mouth when it’s hard to stay away from people, on public transport and in shops.

Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water as often as you can.  Especially when you’ve been outside your home.

At home, clean surfaces and any shared items as often as possible.

And open your windows to keep rooms well ventilated.

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • A high temperature – this means you may feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour or having three or more coughing episodes in a day.   
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

If you have any of these symptoms, you must stay at home.

Isolate yourself from the rest of your household.

Call 119 or go on to the NHS website to book a test for coronavirus.

Thank you for playing your part in keeping yourself and your community safe.  Following this advice will save lives.

Stay tuned for the rest of the videos/audios
