Help Bedford Borough Avoid a Local Lockdown This Autumn Half Term

 

Bedford Borough is currently in the ‘medium’ local COVID alert level.

However, cases have risen considerably since the summer and having seen more places added to the ‘High’ and ‘Very High’ alert levels, we are reminding everyone to follow the ‘rule of 6’ and ‘Hands, Face, Space’ advice; wash their hands regularly, wear a face covering, and keep 2m away from others.

To help slow the spread of the virus, everyone is encouraged to:

  • Not meet in groups larger than six
  • Limit the number of people that they come into contact with to limit the spread
  • To meet outdoors wherever possible

Mayor Dave Hodgson said “We’re seeing daily reports of more places going in to higher COVID tiers, with more restrictions put in place. Now more than ever we need to make sure we all continue to follow the guidance to reduce the spread of the virus and avoid a Liverpool-style local lockdown and the damage that could do to the local economy.”

“Please continue to limit your contact with people you don’t live with, don’t meet in groups any larger than six, and remember Hands, Face, Space.”
