Important Information @ 23 March 2020

You should only leave the house for one of four reasons. 

● Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible. 

● One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household. 

● Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person. 

● Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.

cleaning & disposal of waste

Guidance from the Government for Households with Possible Coronavirus Covid-19 Infection

Cleaning and disposal of waste

When cleaning you should use your usual household products, like detergents and bleach, as these will be very effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces. 

Clean frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, handrails, remote controls and table tops. This is particularly important if you have an older or vulnerable person in the house.

Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin.

Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.



 This is an excellent idea to help our neighbours should they have to self isolate.

A printed copy of this form has been distributed to all homes in West Dean.
