The new measures which have been announced state that you should not leave your house except for the following reasons:
1. Shopping for necessities like food and medicine as infrequently as possible.
2. One form of exercise a day either alone or with people you live with only. This may include running, walking or cycling.
3. Medical needs of any kind or to provide care to a vulnerable person.
4. Travelling to and from work, only if work is necessary and absolutely cannot be done at home.
Self-isolation doesn’t mean having to manage alone
The Telford Senior Citizens Forum is offering telephone support to older people who are feeling isolated or need some help. Volunteers can offer a regular call and a friendly chat to make sure older people are coping.
Call 07932 828333 or 07552 975676 Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm. Leave a message outside of these hours.
