Continuation Fit Note for ESA (contributions based) - when and how to send to please?

Just contacted money advice service who were unable to give me the answer. I also called DWP three times but was on hold for 23 minutes before being automatically cut off. Hoped someone might know the answer please.
I've received ESA contributions based whilst recovering from major surgery for the past six weeks. Fit note was dated from 27/06/2020 for six weeks so assume expires after Friday this week. GP supposedly issuing me with new fit note for another six weeks which I can collect on Friday.
I wanted to ask if anyone knows:
Who I should give this to? Is it DWP (no one asked for it last time probably due to covid situation).
When should it be submitted? (considering current one runs out after Friday when I'm meant to be collecting renewal, I'm concerned it may be too late and my ESA will be stopped?
I've seen there's an online facility where you can send fit notes so maybe this. I've been given no details in my postal correspondence on what to do when note runs out.
Many thanks in advance
