From Thursday 05 November 2020, Sussex has joined the rest of England under new national restrictions.
Health and care organisations across Sussex are all working together to protect and support our local communities.
Everyone can do their part to restrict the spread of the virus.
Stay at home if you can, keep a distance and protect each other when you have to go out.
Some local council services will change during the restrictions to follow national guidance.

NHS services remain open and are here for you.
If you have an appointment, please continue to attend as normal. You don’t need to call to check that a booked appointment is going ahead. You will be contacted directly if anything changes with your appointment.
If you are classed as clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus (often people who were previously advised to shield for medical reasons) you will soon receive a letter from the Government providing guidance. You can also find this guidance about how to stay safe online – Guidance for the clinically extremely vulnerable
If you are not in this group, but may need help because of ill-health, isolation or access to essentials, there is a range of support available. Find out about services that can help with specific issues, like mental health support, and what to do if you can’t get food, medicines, or are lonely and isolated, on your council’s website:
