Waverley Liberal Democrats have collated a number of resources to help inform and support local residents and businesses through the coronavirus pandemic. Please scroll down the page for more information.
These are challenging times, but they are also proving to be a time where communities are coming together to help each other. We thank all key workers, in the NHS and beyond, and the amazing volunteers who are doing so much to help protect our communities.
As residents, it’s really important that we continue to follow the official advice and guidance to stay safe - for ourselves, for our families and friends, for our neighbours and for our colleagues.
As the situation is continuing to change rapidly, please take advice from the government as to which restrictions apply locally through the UK Government website. The latest NHS information and advice can be found on the NHS website.
To book a free NHS COVID test visit the NHS test booking website or call 119.
As always, if there's anything the local Liberal Democrat team can help you with please do get in touch.
For medical help, phone 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk. In an emergency call 999.

Taking sensible precautions while helping others
Please take all appropriate medical advice seriously before calling on anyone and look to emulate best practice, such as from online supermarket delivery services.
- Hygiene – washing our hands more regularly soap and water for 20 seconds. You may want to take hand sanitiser (at least 60% alcohol content) out with you.
- Social distancing – including not shaking hands with residents or colleagues, keeping 2m apart, leaving things on doorsteps
All across the UK communities and individuals are developing new ideas and new resources for how we can care for our neighbours at this difficult time. If you’ve developed a community resource and would like it shared on this site, email us at [email protected]
