"Cumbria County Council is monitoring all confirmed cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the county and we are working closely with health and care partners. We are in regular contact with Public Health England (PHE) to ensure that the very latest advice and protocols are adhered to.
The level of risk for Cumbria is still low. If you are worried please call the NHS 111 helpline.
The advice still stands that if you have recently been to one of the affected countries and are feeling unwell, you should self-isolate and phone the NHS 111 helpline for further advice straight away - please don't go to your GP, pharmacies, walk-in centres or A&E.
Prevention is always better than cure, so, as with the flu virus, the most effective way for people to protect themselves from COVID-19 is to adopt good respiratory and hand hygiene to prevent the risk of infection and a 'catch it, bin it, kill it' approach to coughs and sneezes. "
