Lyng Parish Council
Corona Virus Covid-19
The Parish Council would like to urge residents to follow the national advice with regards to corona virus. Daily updates can be found on;
It is recommended that advice is taken from this site as opposed to newspapers, social media or knowledge from others. This is an evolving real-time situation, so it is important to understand the most up to date advice.
As a community we will all be aware of neighbours, friends and family members who may be vulnerable and at risk, as well as lonely, so do what you can to help.
Pick up the phone. A daily check on people will not only help with ensuring safety and, if necessary medical intervention, it can also be a real boost for mental health. As this situation progresses, boredom and isolation can kick in so it is important to talk.
Assist your neighbours. You can leave them a postcard with your details on, offering to collect shopping, medication, walk the dog or to just offer a phone call. It is important that you manage your own personal health and safeguarding by not interacting directly with anyone who may already be ill.
Please make a note of your own requirements. In the event that you may be isolated or in need of medical assistance. It is important that anyone intervening can understand your health situation. Write down any allergies, medication requirements, underlying health conditions etc and place them somewhere visible or share with a neighbour or family member.
We are aware that some of the most vulnerable members of our community do not have access to social media, so please spread the word where possible.
Measures are currently being considered for those residents who need some help and don't have anyone to call. The website will be updated as soon as possible.
Please follow advice given, although the measures being introduced may seem draconian, it is important to follow the national advice. If you feel ill, visit the website above and go from there.
Most importantly, stay safe out there, look out for each other. Residents are encouraged to stand together at this difficult time and together we can ensure that community spirit prevails.
