Coronavirus in Calderdale – useful information

The OMI and Friday Flyer team have put together some  helpful suggestions and a list of advice outlining the current coronavirus situation in Calderdale.

The list is by no means exhaustive. For current, uptodate information, always refer to official channels. These are listed at the end of this article.

The information in this article is accurate at the time of posting.

Lockdown – restrictions

Stay at home is the advisory.

Only go for groceries or emergencies. You can also go out once for exercise.

If you have coronavirus symptoms: Isolate. Do not go to your GP. Call 111 for advice. Only request assistance if symptoms become severe.

If you must commute, observe social distancing where possible.

Always wear a face mask in closed spaces. If you are exempt from wearing face coverings, have supporting documentation at hand.

Children under the age of 11 do need a face mask.

Health and wellbeing

Clinically vulnerable should shield

Covid and diabetes: Having diabetes does not make you more likely to catch coronavirus. It may make it worse however.

Vaccination

The vaccine is deemed to be safe.

Vaccination is prioritised for the elderly, vulnerable and keyworkers.

Do not contact the NHS requesting vaccination. The NHS will contact you when it is your turn.

Scams

As we do more online and there is concern, scams are on the rise.

Protect yourself online.

Be wary of people approaching you, selling coronavirus vaccine. The vaccine is presently not for sale.

Is your attic room costing you money?

Up to 25% of a home’s heat can be lost through the roof and if your attic room is not properly insulated, you could be wasting money on your energy bills. Following a successful application process, Calderdale Council will receive over £2million from the Government’s Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme, to help improve the energy efficiency of low-income households (up to £30k household income or means tested benefits). The funding will be used to support residents living in the least energy efficient homes to make residents’ homes healthier, warmer and cheaper to heat as well as helping to reduce carbon emissions and tackle the climate emergency.

Eligible households could receive the work, either fully-funded or significantly discounted. The work will be carried out by Better Homes and Yorkshire’s delivery partner, Halifax-based, Eclipse Energy, energy efficient home improvement experts and winners of the 2019 Sustainable Business Award for Calderdale.

This offer is only available for a limited time! Find out more today by calling Eclipse Energy direct on 01422 414850, or email sales@eclipseenergy.co.uk
