COVID-19 HELP TRACK AND AVOID THE VIRUS IN FRAM2020-08-13T22:31:19+00:00

The risk of infection in Fram is currently very low
Let’s keep it that way by contributing to research

The aim of the Fram Covid 19 Response team is to minimise the risk of infection in the town. You can help build a picture of the risk locally by joining the Covid Symptom Study.

Millions of people have signed up to the app, 3,531 in the Suffolk Coastal area. The study, at King’s College London, is building a picture of infection and symptoms across the country and has been accurately predicting the UK’s new hot spots. In the fight against Coronavirus reliable information is key.

  • It only takes a minute each day, reporting your symptoms even if you feel well
  • It will help the scientists to track how fast the virus is spreading in our area.

You can view the COVID Symptom Study results, the maps, and research at: C-19 Symptom Study. To join the study, download the C-19 app on your smart phone or tablet.  A message will be sent each day to remind you to record any symptoms.

It’s voluntary – but the more people who sign up, the better the picture. Over 3000 people in Suffolk Costal have joined so far.

“wash hands, cover face, make space” – the virus is now much more infectious. Keep safe by following the Social Distancing guidance:
This means you must:
Wear your mask properly – cover your nose and mouth
wash your hands regularly
Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
Stay at home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms

Self isolating and you need help?

Assistance is available:

Vaccines are being co-ordinated by the NHS centrally, and they will contact you to arrange an appointment. There are a number of special vaccination centres nearby to which you will be directed according to the supply of vaccines. Hour Community will help those in need of transport.
The surgery does not know when people will get their injection, so please help the NHS do not call them for a vaccination appointment.
