HEALTHCARE

People visiting all healthcare settings in Lincolnshire should continue to follow additional COVID-19 safety measures after Monday 19 July.

The county’s health organisations, including services in hospitals, GP practices, mental health and in the community, have confirmed there will be no change to measures already in place when other national restrictions are lifted.

This means staff, patients and visitors should continue to wear face masks unless medically exempt, socially distance, wash hands before entering and leaving premises where possible and use hand sanitiser provided in each area.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Lincolnshire County Council operates a Community Help and Volunteering portal for those seeking or looking to help in the local area.

The Royal Voluntary Service has set up NHS Volunteer Responders to support the NHS during the COVID-19 outbreak, to help the 1.5m people in England who are at most risk from the virus.

The Government is also offering support for those who want to volunteer or take part in a vaccine research study.

"In this time of unprecedented national challenge it is vital that whilst we stay apart to protect our NHS we work together to defeat this virus. Together we will come through this, and the government stands ready to do whatever it takes to protect our people, our businesses and our economy."

Matt Warman MP
