If you need help during the coronavirus outbreak

Information for those who need help during the coronavirus outbreak and how to get it can be found on Derbyshire County Council's website (opens in a new window).

There is help through the Community Response Unit if you have no friends or family you can call on and:

  • you are self-isolating because you or a member of your household has tested positive for coronavirus or you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.
  • you are struggling to meet your basic needs because of financial, social or health restrictions related to COVID-19.
  • finding it difficult to leave your home for any other reason (for example, because of a disability).

Guidance on shielding and protecting people defined on medical grounds as extremely vulnerable can also be found on Gov.uk (opens in a new window)

If you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 you must self-isolate.  It is now law in England to self isolate if you test positive or are contacted by NHS Test and Trace.
