    Dear Constituent,

    Thank you for contacting me about the outbreak of the coronavirus.

    We all need to be taking the medical advice from Public Health England and the NHS seriously, and to self-isolate if we are experiencing symptoms. Perfectly healthy people may find the symptoms to be very mild and feel able to resume their regular activities, but they might be spreading coronavirus to others who are most vulnerable, such as those with weaker immune systems and the elderly.

    If you are experiencing symptoms then visit NHS 111 online at: and only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

    You should make regular checks on the government website for the latest information at:

    Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.

    Yours sincerely,

    Mel Stride MP

    MP for Central Devon
