Residents of Waverley are being urged to be extra vigilant to help slow down the spread of coronavirus in the area.
In a statement on Monday 5 October, Surrey County Council’s Director of Public Health, Ruth Hutchingson urged everyone to:
- ensure they are washing their hands
- wear face coverings when required
- keep their distance around people they don’t live with.
She also encouraged people to limit the number of households they were in contact with and asked people to avoid getting together in groups of more than six.
These preventative measures are the best way to keep loved ones safe and avoid local lockdowns.
If you have Coronavirus symptoms – a persistent cough, high fever, or a change in smell or taste – then you should book a test by calling 119 or visiting www.nhs.co.uk/coronavirus. Slots are made available the evening before for morning appointments, and in the morning for afternoon appointments.
A break down of the latest publicly available figures for the county can be found on Surrey County Council's website.
