At Go North Devon your safety is our top priority.

Like many voluntary and community groups across the UK, we are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and following the advice provided by the NHS and UK Government.

We have also introduced a series of measures to protect our clients and colleagues, including:


It is hard to keep up to date with the changing advice and news about coronavirus.
If you are concerned or have symptoms use the NHS 111 online service: https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19  coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Use this service if:
You think you might have coronavirus;
In the last 14 days you’ve been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus;
You’ve been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough, sneezes or hand contact. A person can also catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.
For up to date information regarding coronavirus use this link https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public
