Choose Well to help the NHS during these difficult times

Restrictions may have lifted but the COVID infection rates are still high in Calderdale.

NHS services are currently overwhelmed with handling COVID cases.

Calderdale and Ryburn PCN are encouraging you to choose wisely before reaching out to the NHS for help and for non emergencies, try different venues first.

In Any Emergency, always call 999.

Do not put off important health check appointments.

COVID guidelines after July 19

Since Monday the 19th of July, most restrictions have been lifted, making the previously mandatory guidelines of social distancing and face coverings a voluntary measure.

We are encouraged to adhere to these rules at our own discretion.

Be aware that several places will still insist on maintaining such guidelines.

Many GPs, public transport and closed spaces will still require you to observe these measures.

Please be considerate to others and do not endanger their health for the sake of giving up a rule.

As always, if you have been contacted and advised you need to quarantine and self isolate, you must observe this.

If you suspect you may have contracted COVID, get tested as soon as possible.

There are many options to be tested. Many workplaces require regular Lateral Flow tests. These tests are offered free of charge and it is recommended to be tested twice a week.

Infection rates are still high, especially in Calderdale.

Even if you are fully vaccinated, you may still become infected, you should however have much milder symptoms. You can still carry the virus, even if you are asymptomatic.

Please note: This article expresses opinions based on current affairs. It should not be treated as a guideline.
