Coronavirus (COVID-19) – a message from Devon Association of Local Councils and Devon County Council

Dear Colleagues
You will be acutely aware of the current situation regarding Coronavirus and the national and local efforts to contain it.
We can all help by making sure we stay abreast of the latest health advice and guidance from Public Health England and sharing this with our local residents.
Up to date information can always be found via the County Council’s website
You can also follow Public Health England’s Facebook page or Twitter feed for the latest updates, information and advice.
Unfortunately, yesterday it was confirmed by the Chief Medical Officer that Devon has its first suspected cases of a local resident having contracting Coronavirus (COVID -19) following a trip to Northern Italy.
We understand from Public Health England (PHE) that all close contacts of those infected will be traced and given health advice about symptoms and emergency contact details to use if they become unwell in the 14 days after contact.
PHE also advise that if anyone has recently been to one of the affected areas and is feeling unwell, they should phone the NHS 111 helpline for further advice straight away rather than go to the doctor or a hospital.
Detailed guidance from PHE and the NHS includes Frequently Asked Questions.
More generally, we can also help by reminding everyone that good hygiene is the best prevention and there are some simple steps everyone can take to protect themselves and their family. These include washing hands regularly and thoroughly and covering mouths and noses with a tissue when coughing and disposing of the tissue bin.
Whilst we can expect more cases in the coming days and weeks, the risk to the general public remains low. The County Council will continue to work with health colleagues and all our partners to do everything we can to stop the virus spreading and keep people in Devon safe.

Revised road closure programme – flood alleviation scheme

As you may be aware, the works in Stokeinteignhead have been delayed due to Western Power Distribution having to cancel their element of the work on Stoke Road due to Storm Dennis repair works.
For this reason the revised programme below has been proposed, with the main change being to delay Stoke Road works to coincide with the Easter school break, eliminating any impact on the school.  This programme is yet to be confirmed by the Devon County Council traffic management team, however, initial discussions have not raised any concerns.
