The Government and NHS have issued advice for members of the public following the confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK.
Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
The UK Chief Medical Officers are advising anyone who has travelled to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau in the last 14 days and is experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, to stay indoors and call NHS 111, even if symptoms are mild.
More information about the virus, as well as symptoms and advice, is available to view at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/

SUGGESTED NEW GROUPS FOR 2020
Following my previous requests for ideas for forming new groups the following have been suggested
EXISTING GROUPS THAT ARE EITHER FULL OR NOT HELD ON CONVENIENT DAYS OR TIMES
Current Affairs, Soups and Puddings, Book Group, Short Walks – preferably without dogs, Poetry, Short Story Writing.
NEW GROUP SUGGESTIONS
Someone in the following groups will need to have some experience/knowledge. Please state any experience when registering an interest.
Beginners Photography, Beginners Recorder, Sign language. Coarse Angling, Backgammon, The Internet of things.
Please send your interest in any of the above groups to me by the end of February.
There is no need to state your preferred days and times at this stage.
When I have had all the replies I will arrange and set up planning meetings for the viable groups.
I am asking all WWU3A members to send me any ideas they have for forming new groups.
I have already been given some ideas and I will add the newones to this list and send it out to all members to see what interest there is in all of the suggested groups. I will then set up planning meetings for those that appear to be viable.
The ideas could come from the fact that existing groups you are interested in are on a day and time which is inconvenient for you or a group you want to join is full therefore an additional similar group would be welcome These groups are usually, but not always, those that meet in private homes and are restricted by numbers.
I look forward to be inundated with your suggestions!
Please reply to Groups Co-ordinator
NEW GROUP ADVISORY FROM GROUPS COORDINATOR
I have had a request to set up a German Group for Beginners.
If you are interested in such a group please contact me at the email address below stating if you have any knowledge of the language and to what level.
If there is enough interest I will follow our procedure for forming the group.
