  Support in Surrey

If you experience symptoms of coronavirus, limit all contact with others for at least seven days. Do not go to a GP, Pharmacy or hospital.

If you live with others, everyone in the household must isolate for 14 days from the date of symptoms in the first person to show signs of the virus.

For more information, see the NHS online pages.

In March, the Office of the PCC launched a Coronavirus Support Fund that has committed close to £200,000 in additional funding to services helping those affected by domestic abuse, homelessness and substance abuse  – ensuring support is still there for those that desperately need it.
