Advice on the novel coronavirus "Covid-19"


Advice to local businesses and residents

The Bodmin Chamber of Commerce and Industry is, for obvious reasons, not in a position to advise anyone on how best to avoid contracting Covid-19, nor to advise on how best to proceed if they suspect that they may have contracted it; we can, to a certain extent, offer advice as to how businesses might best protect their existence during the current crisis. The links that follow are therefore primarily to authoritative sites such as the World Health Organisation, NHS UK, NKS Kernow and H.M. Government, who are in a position to offer authoritative advice on these vital topics. Chamber-specific advice may be added in due course, in which case it will clearly be flagged as such.
