Advice on Covid-19

The NHS website and 111 service is the best place to get up to date information on Covid-19. Their dedicated pages include information on symptoms, self-isolation / containment and treatments – https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Advice on Covid-19 in other languages can be found here.

Tower Hamlets Homes has the following advice for residents on their dedicated information page:
“If you are self-isolating because of suspected Coronavirus please send us a DM on Twitter or call us on 020 7364 5015 so that we can take appropriate measures in the event that we need to visit your home.”

It is important that, as a community we support neighbours who need to self-isolate. Please consider checking on and offering to shop for older neighbours or those who have underlying health conditions who can’t get out.  Don’t forget to avoid close contact if interacting with those who are vulnerable to the virus.

The CTRA is working with other community groups across the Weavers Ward to provide a community volunteer-led Mutual Aid Service to bring essential items to people self-isolating. Further details can be found here – http://www.columbiatra.org.uk/mutual-aid/

A local community group has set up a Facebook Group for Tower Hamlets residents looking to help each other out during the Covid-19/corona virus pandemic. It is not a medical advice group. They will be looking to help people access food, complete errands etc – particularly those who are elderly, disabled and/or immunocompromised
