COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus.

If you have:

• a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back

• a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly, you should stay at home

There are many questions people will have and most are covered in the national advice (like how to look after yourself, what to do if you are a carer, how to self isolate, or if you are worried about your pets).

You can find more advice on staying home and what to do here. This advice is also available in other languages like Arabic, Farsi, and Dari.

The Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service is running as normal, but if you have the symptoms above you should stay home.

If you have an appointment to see someone at the service but you would prefer to speak to them on the phone, you should let your therapist or the service know by phoning 020 8637 6279 or emailing

Staff are very aware of the worries people have and we are here to help and offer support throughout it.
