Coronavirus (COVID-19): Service changes, support and guidance



Tameside Council and Tameside and Glossop NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are working closely with partners to support the local community with a wide-ranging response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Together we pledge to:

  • Redeploy staff to keep vital services running – even if they have to be delivered in a different way
  • Work to try and ensure our residents don’t lose their homes because they are affected by COVID19
  • Ensure that those who work for care providers don’t have to choose between their wage, their health and the health of those they support
  • Work with schools and other education providers to help ensure the safety of those attending
  • Work with community partners and the private sector to ensure everyone has access to food whether they are unwell, isolating or caring
  • Support, encourage and mobilise the huge community spirit which exists in Tameside

If you are self-isolating and have no family, friends or neighbours to support you please call 0161 342 8355

Let’s work together to protect our Tameside community

 It’s important, now more than ever, that we continue with our efforts to protect each other.  

It’s simple and it works, here’s what you can do to help:

Do not socialise with anyone you don’t live with, or that isn’t in your support bubble anywhere indoorsor
in your garden. If you are outdoors in public, do not gather in groups of more than six – It works!
Keep your social distance – It works!

Wash your hands regularly – It works!
 
Self isolate if you have symptoms or are identified as a close contact – It works!
Wear a face covering – It works!

 
SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDANCE AVAILABLE HERE
 

Got symptoms? Get tested

If you have any of the following symptoms, no matter how mild, you need to self-isolate and get a test immediately so that it’s within 5 days of being symptomatic;
 

  • a high temperature - this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough - this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • Anosmia  - the loss of or a change in your normal sense of smell. It can also affect your sense of taste as the two are closely linked.

To book a test or order a home testing kit visit:
www.nhs.uk/coronavirus or call 119

 
There are a number of testing sites in Greater Manchester for you to book an appointment at, but we are making more and more local testing sites available here in Tameside for easier access.
 
If you test positive, NHS Test and Tracing will contact you to trace people you have been in close contact with.
 

HOW TRACK AND TRACE WORKS

If you’re told you have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, please self-isolate for 14 days even if you aren’t showing any symptoms.
