Inter-generational households

Sub heading

​We appreciate that many Luton families live in multi-generational homes, which makes it more challenging when it comes to self-isolation. However, it is absolutely vital that the government advice is followed to slow the spread.
 
It's really important to try to keep people who are vulnerable (aged over 70, underlying condition, pregnant) away from people who may have symptoms.
 
Self-isolation is going to become more and more common, so try to plan ahead and discuss as a family how this might work and why it is important to comply.
 
If it's not possible to move them to a different place to live, try to identify a room where they can be separate from other people in the household. People with coronavirus symptoms (fever or persistent cough) should be kept away from them, wherever possible. This is called shielding.
 
Try to keep a distance of two metres (three paces) if you need to be in the same room unless you are providing personal care, such as bathing. This is called social distancing.
 
If you're providing care for any elderly or sick people within your home please remember to wash hands with soap and water before and after looking after them.
