Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period

Oral Health for Children under 5
Tooth decay is a disease that can be contracted as soon as we grow our first set of teeth. It can cause problems with pain, speech chewing and nutrition. As soon as we have our teeth we need to try and protect them. Looking after children’s teeth starts by having a good brushing regime and regular dental checks. Teaching your child to brush their teeth properly is very important. The most important time to brush is last thing at night, before bed time. When children brush they need to keep going for at least two minutes. The other time to brush, can be at any other time (as recommended by the Department of Health). When brushing a pea size amount of toothpaste should be applied to the brush. Holding the brush as a 45-degree angle gently in a circular quick motion brush the teeth. Abrasive brush action may cause gum and sensitivity issues so be gentle. The key to good oral care for children is to start early. Let them choose their favourite colour brush and toothpaste flavour. Make sure they enjoy this activity and not consider it to be a punishment. By making the experience fun and encouraging them to make brushing part of their daily routine you will begin the task of the child looking after their teeth It is important when brushing to use the correct fluoride containing toothpaste to suit the age of the child. For children 0-3 years old the fluoride content should be no less than 1,000 part per million (ppm). For children 3-6 years old the fluoride content should be 1,350-1,500 ppm. You can find the fluoride content of toothpaste on the back of the packet listed under the ingredients. The levels of fluoride in children’s toothpaste is less than in adult toothpaste because of the tendency for them to swallow it. Dental checks are free for children from the age of six months so make use of them and get children into the habit of seeing the dentist. Look on the NHS choices website to find your local dentist. You can then register your child and begin the lifelong process of looking after their oral health. As well as regular brushing and dental checks there are a few other things you can do to look after your children’s teeth; Do not use bottle for juice only milk and water. Limit sugary food and drink including juice to meal times. Move from bottle feeding to an open cup as soon as possible. Where possible choose the sugar free alternative. Here are a few websites where you can get more information. www.healthyunder5s.nhs.uk - healthy under 5s http://www.nationalsmilemonth.org/- national smile week www.nhs.uk - NHS choices
