Having seen Maxine at the coffee morning today she's given a bit of information about coronavirus...


You and your children are no more at risk of getting coronavirus than you are of getting normal flu. You just need to follow normal hand washing and general hygiene rules.

If you are concerned then avoid crowded public places such as bluewater, the cinema, swimming etc.

There have been no cases of coronavirus at Maidstone Hospital although there is a pod set up.

If you are concerned that you or your child are showing symptoms then ring 111 and follow the advice they give you.
