Social distancing is crucial to reducing transmission of coronavirus, Steve Brown is reminding people ahead of the Easter weekend.
Step one of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown is underway with up to six people or two households of any size now able to meet outside and outdoor sports resuming. It’s exciting after so many weeks of lockdown, but please don’t be tempted to meet indoors as the risk of spreading the virus is significantly higher inside.
Weather permitting, families and individuals will no doubt want to catch up with others this weekend, and the relaxation of restrictions now allows up to 6 people, or two households, to meet up outside – in the garden for example – while adhering to social distancing and good hand hygiene. But please let’s be cautious, otherwise we place ourselves, our families and friends at risk.
