People with Fibromyalgia advised to practice social distancing

 

The latest UK government advice is for everyone to practice social distancing to reduce risk. 

Please follow this advice-

 

  • Avoid contact with anyone who displays symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). Symptoms include high temperature and/or new and continuous cough

  • Try not to use public transport unless you really have to and, if you can, always avoid rush hour

  • Work from home where possible. Your employer should support you to do this.

  • Avoid large gatherings, and gatherings in smaller public spaces like pubs, cinemas, restaurants, theatres, bars, clubs

  • Avoid gatherings with friends and family.

  • Keep in touch using remote technology like phone, internet, and social media.

  • Use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services

Keep washing your hands

In line with general public health advice, if you have Fibromyalgia you should make sure you wash your hands frequently.

Where possible, avoid being within two metres of people who are coughing and sneezing.
