LINKS - HELP AND INFORMATION

See also our own Covid-19 page for local information and initiatives.

We have also now developed a new page on Scams and Misinformation.

This is the link to the NHS 111 Online guidance on Covid-19 - https://111.nhs.uk/coronavirus-covid-19.  It includes a form to use if you have to self-isolate, to submit to your employer and lots of relevant links.
This link covers guidance for those with asthma - https://www.asthma.org.uk/advice/triggers/coronavirus-covid-19/

Here is a link to the Government's main page on their response - https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus.  Scroll down a bit and click on the first option 'How to protect yourself and others' for guidance on Social Distancing, Self Isolation and Shielding and Protecting the Extremely Vulnerable.  As an example, here is the government's guidance on social distancing and protecting older people and vulnerable adults, which also links to guidance on self-isolation ('stay-at-home' now applies to all of us in non-essential occupations). 

Note this guidance includes specific, stricter, guidelines for older people and vulnerable adults people (over 70s and those under 70 with relevant 'underlying health issues').  However these should not be confused with the guidelines for a subset of this group, referred to as 'Extremely Vulnerable', who were sent a letter on the 22nd March.  Further information for people in the 'Extremely Vulnerable category can be found here -    https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19.  This link includes, quite a way down, a link to the system for registering as Extremely Vulnerable which, once done, opens up suitable support for people in this group.

Following a notice from the local police, discouraging people from driving to open spaces to take their exercise, here is the goverment guidance on 'what you can and can't do' - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-outbreak-faqs-what-you-can-and-cant-do/coronavirus-outbreak-faqs-what-you-can-and-cant-do#can-i-drive-to-a-national-park-or-other-green-space-to-walk.

Government guidance on closure of schools including exempt professions. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision.

For more information about local initiatives, including the 'Buddy scheme run by West Bridgford Community Helpers, see our Covid-19 page.

Lady Bay Pharmacy temporary opening hours - MONDAY TO FRIDAY 10am - 12noon and 2pm - 4pm, SATURDAY 10am - 12noon, SUNDAY closed.  Post Office 10-3, Monday to Friday (remember they sell various hardware and other items).

Recycling - Rugby Road Centre is closed - Bring Sites (bottle banks etc.) are still being operated by Rushcliffe Council but on a less frequent basis, on the assumption that people are conforming with government instructions to only go out for essential purposes.  They request that , where possible, people stockpile their recycling items at home until the crisis is over.

All Play Areas are now closed - yes that includes the Hook and the ones on Oaktree Close and Adbolton Grove (have they cleaned that one up yet, anyway?).  The public parks are still open for exercise and dog walking - please maintain Social Distancing at all times.

No. 11 Bus service now suspended as of 25 March 2020.  NCT have a funny way of telling you (listing the services that are continuing) but that does seem the outcome - website - https://www.nctx.co.uk/.  The 90 (Nottingham-Newark) is also suspended.  The L22/23 buses are still operating to a reduced timetable, according to the CT4N website, 4 a day as of 30 March 2020.  So far as we can see, the Cotgrave and the Mainline are still running but with a Sunday service every day, with stops outbound at Gertrude Road and Rutland Road, stops inbound are on Davies Road and, of course, West Bridgford Centre.  See Trent Barton website for latest situation - https://trentbarton.co.uk/The tram is operating a Sunday Service every day - https://thetram.net/.
