Coronavirus Advice


Will you help us to save water?

On behalf of the Environment Agency and Severn Trent, I’m writing to brief you on the outlook for water supplies over the summer and to ask for your help to ensure we can meet demand at what is a particularly sensitive time.

  1. Do not use hoses to water gardens, municipal parks and other outside areas on days when the temperature rises above 22˚
  2. Do not wash vehicles more than once a month between now and September (except for reasons of essential hygiene)

COVID-19 levels are now on the rise within the UK and indeed across many areas of the world. Coventry and Warwickshire have now begun to report their first cases. Whilst it is important to feel reassured that the UK are very well prepared for more cases of COVID-19, we can all be taking action and following steps as outlined in Public Health England’s helpful guide ‘5 things you can do to protect yourself and your community’. The first of these is to “wash your hands regularly and catch coughs and sneezes in a tissue”. 
We are liaising closely with Public Health England to ensure the right messages are disseminated to staff and partners and there is up to date information available on the staff intranet.  Please also have a look the gov.uk website for additional information which is updated daily and includes any advice for returning travellers and the public in general at this time. 
The NHS 111 service continue to take many calls around COVID-19 concerns, but please note there is also a helpful and easy to use online advice service too. Further, a new national Department for Education Helpline has been established to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows: 
Phone: 0800 046 8687 
Email: coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk 

If you have recently been to one of the affected areas and are feeling unwell, you should use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service or call NHS 111 for further advice straight away – please don’t go to your doctor or a hospital. There’s lots of advice on how people can protect themselves online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
