Latest COVID-19 advice

Although most formal COVID-19 restrictions are now no longer in place outside healthcare settings, COVID-19 has not gone away. There are simple and effective things you can still do to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.

Reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19 

You can help reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19 and keep yourself and your loved ones safe by: 

  • Letting fresh air in if you’re meeting indoors, or meeting outside. 

  • Considering wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces if you can.

Treatment and Testing

The NHS offers treatment for people with COVID-19 who are at highest risk of becoming seriously ill. Further information is available here: Treatments for COVID-19 - NHS (www.nhs.uk).

The webpage below lists the groups of people who are at highest risk.

Where to get tests

If you (or someone you look after) are in a group of people at highest risk you should have a pack of 5 COVID-19 lateral flow device (LFD/LFT) tests to keep at home, in case you develop COVID-19 symptoms.

These are available from the community pharmacies listed by area below. You will be asked to provide personal details, and may need to provide evidence of eligibility.

What to do if you have COVID-19

Most people with COVID-19 get better within a few weeks. You may be able to look after yourself at home while you recover.  

If you have a high temperature, it can help to get lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids, and take over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol if you’re feeling uncomfortable. To treat a cough you should avoid lying on your back when you’re resting, or try having a teaspoon of honey. 

If your symptoms get worse or you feel unable to care for yourself, visit NHS 111 online via 111.nhs.uk or call 111 for advice.  

Visit NHS.UK for more detailed advice on how to look after yourself if you have COVID-19. 

What to do if you have COVID-19 and are at high-risk

If you (or someone you look after) is at highest risk of becoming seriously ill and has symptoms of COVID-19, you should take a test as soon as possible.

If the test is positive, you or your representative should contact your GP or specialist clinician e.g., hospital consultant, or phone 111. You will then be referred, if appropriate, to a team of healthcare professionals who will assess whether treatment is needed. If it is agreed that you need treatment, this may be an oral medicine (tablet or capsule) or an intravenous injection. More information on individual treatments can be found here:

Paxlovid: a medicine to treat coronavirus (COVID-19) - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

Sotrovimab: what it’s used for and key facts. - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

Molnupiravir: a medicine to treat coronavirus (COVID-19) - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

The oral medicine will be prescribed, and the prescription sent to your preferred Community Pharmacy for collection. The intravenous injection will be given either at a clinic in Peterborough, or another location if you are not able to travel to Peterborough.
