Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and News
25 Apr 2020
From this page you can find all of the Whittington Health advice, information and news related to COVID-19.
Like the NHS as a whole, Whittington Health is well prepared to respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. You can help us to help you, everyone has a role to play in protecting themselves and others.
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
Help us to help you by only leaving your home for very limited purposes:
- shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
- one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
- any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
- travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home
These reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
