Coronavirus: Look after yourself

Taking care of your body and mind is really important – especially during the coronavirus outbreak.

First and foremost, always follow the government’s coronavirus advice and the NHS’s coronavirus guidance.

If you need to request help for yourself or someone else due to coronavirus, complete this help request form. If you’re unsure where to go for medical support, visit the NHS 111 website.

Read the government’s guidance on what you can and can’t dostaying alert and safe, and meeting with others safely (social distancing).

Virtual community centre

If you use Facebook, follow our ‘virtual community centre’ page. We share lots of positive ideas, support and inspiration, to encourage you to stay safe and healthy.

Exercise and physical wellbeing

It’s important to try to stay fit and healthy at this time. Our sport and fitness activities at home page lists many websites that will give you ideas for exercising with limited space and equipment.

Mental health and wellbeing

We all react differently in situations like this – some of us will feel more frustrated, worried or lonely than others.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health crisis, contact the Cambridgeshire Emergency Mental Health team – phone 111, then select option 2.

There are plenty of online networks and tools that can help you stay in touch with friends and family. Facebook, Skype, WhatsApp and Zoom are just a few that let you see and talk to multiple people at a time.

The following links will give you more information and ideas for staying positive and looking after your mental health:

Car sharing

The county council has produced advice on what to do if you need to share a car journey with somebody from outside your household.

It suggests you should all wear face masks, keep the windows open for ventilation, and sit as far from others as possible.

Guidance for people living in HMOs

We have produced guidance in various languages for people living in houses in multiple occupation.
