Corona Virus – COVID 19

The West Sussex Public Health team have been working closely with Public Health England (PHE) who are leading the COVID-19 response and providing messaging for the public. PHE has published the latest guidance for educational settings to help advise pupils, staff and parents or carers regarding Coronavirus. 

A poster has been created by PHE to accompany the guidance and should be downloaded, printed and displayed in all education settings. It is aimed at parents, carers, students, and staff.

We would like to emphasise the importance of hand washing with soap and water, or hand sanitiser if soap and water are unavailable, regularly throughout the day and advise catching coughs and sneezes in a tissue before binning and washing hands.

All new non-clinical guidance will updated on this landing page and the COVID-19 page on the West Sussex County Council website provides links to both the latest Government information and also information about specific countries.

PHE also has a regularly updated blog to answer many frequently asked questions.
