Response to COVID-19

Community Assistance


Let’s all check on our neighbours

Over the coming days, weeks and months, it’s likely that a lot of our community will be isolating. Let’s help each other, as best we can, to get through this period of anxiety, uncertainty and potential loneliness.

Please think about the needs of your neighbours, especially (but not exclusively) the elderly and vulnerable. Please check they’re OK.

PLEASE REMEMBER THE 2 METER RULE

Make sure they have food and other essential items, check whether they need help with shopping and make sure they have your phone number(s).

At the end of this leaflet, you will find a note to use that may be useful to offer help to a neighbour who you may be concerned about. 

If you are self-isolating and do not have help from anyone else, please contact us and we will find a way to get help to you.

This information and leaflets are available to print on the Beaworthy Parish Council Website at beaworthyparish.com

Keeping up to date about Coronavirus 

Guidance related to Coronavirus is changing daily. We can all help to minimise risk, prepare ourselves for self-isolation and protect the most vulnerable members of our community by following trusted sources of information. 

The NHS website provides information about the virus, potential symptoms, guidance on how to self-isolate, details about their 111 service and links to the official Government information for travel advice and action plans. 

www.nhs.uk/coronavirus

NHS 111 online service, available at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus

An online 111 service is available from the NHS website. If you have access to 

the internet, please use this online service if:

. you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

. your condition gets worse

. your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Please only call 111 if you cannot get help from the online service. 

Watch out for Coronavirus scams 

· According to OWL (Online Watch Link), fraudsters are exploiting the spread of 

coronavirus to facilitate various types of fraud. Please remember:

· Watch out for scam messages: Don’t click on the links or attachments in 

suspicious emails 

· Never respond to unsolicited messages and calls that ask for your personal 

or financial details.

· Exercise the same caution that you normally would and don’t allow anyone 

unfamiliar into your property, even if they are offering help.

Leaflet for use

Please use this leaflet if possible - some will be available on the noticeboard at St Albans Church.

West Devon Borough Council has been told that to reduce the impact of Global Warming and limit the effects of Climate Breakdown, we all need to reduce our CO2eq (carbon equivalent) emissions from 6.5 tonnes per person per year to less than 2 tonnes as soon as possible.

This week the Council are launching a borough-wide survey, asking residents for their thoughts on climate change, their current habits or behaviours and to identify what they think our barriers to change are . click here to take the survey  https://plymouth-consult.objective.co.uk/public/shwd/climate_emergency_public_consultation
