If you have to leave your home, please stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household.
In Kettering alone, over 4,000 people have tested positive and sadly nearly 400 deaths were recorded at Kettering Hospital to date.

Coronavirus Support Line - 0300 126 1000 (Option 5)
To help those in need in Northamptonshire during the coronavirus pandemic, a new support line has now been launched to support the most vulnerable members of our community.
There are a large number of people across Northamptonshire who are currently in isolation for various reasons. These include individuals displaying symptoms of Coronavirus and those with existing health conditions, those who are pregnant or those aged 70 and above.
The support line allows those who cannot leave their homes under current restrictions and have nobody to call upon for help, to request support in getting access to food, prescriptions and other vital services that they require.
Those requiring help are asked to call the support line on the following number. The team are centrally collating all requests and these are then sent through to the relevant agency, such as Adult Social Services or Kettering Borough Council who will then organise the appropriate support:
