Coronavirus/ COVID-19

St Michael Parish Council’s best role in this pandemic is to provide direct links to the current information supplied by the Government and the NHS.

Remember, it’s best to seek information on the disease from official sources like those mentioned below. You are advised against relying on social media for information as some of it may be inaccurate, or, worse, be spreading coronavirus conspiracies, fake cures or scams.

BEWARE Fraudsters could pose as helpers by suggesting to do shopping for you if you cannot go out. However genuine or official seeming, NEVER give cash up front to someone you do not know well. NEVER hand over your bank card or account details, a genuine helper will accept a cheque. If in doubt, call a trusted friend, neighbour or relative. If you feel threatened or afraid, call 999 and ask for the police.
