The Oxford Clinical Commissioning Group is the organisation which commissions most of the health services in the whole County. Part of their role involves keeping us informed.
Today they have asked us to share the following:
The number of coronavirus cases in Oxford is rising – particularly among 20 to 30 year olds. Whilst , if you are a young person, you may not experience the worst of the symptoms yourself, older people who you come into contact with may be rather more affected, and it is up to each of us to stop the virus from spreading. Play your part to help stop the spread: keep you distance, wash your hands regularly, wear a face covering and avoid car sharing if you can. If you have any coronavirus symptoms, you must self-isolate immediately and call 119 to book a test. And if you have been abroad to a country that is not on the exemption list, you must by law self-isolate for fourteen days. More information is at www.gov.uk
A bit of additional information in case you need to know: our nearest test centre at present is at the Park and Ride in Kidlington by Oxford Parkway Railway Station.
