Coronavirus Update

Come on Whittington and Fisherwick…let’s do it for what matters

Everyone has a reason to want to see the back of the Coronavirus pandemic. You may want to cuddle your grandchildren, get a business up and running again or simply get back into the gym.

We’re all different, but we can all do some simple things to stop the virus in its tracks.

We know that changing guidance can be confusing, but three things won’t change:

  1. Hands – keep them clean. COVID virus can stay active on surfaces for up to 24 hours. You could pick up or pass on the virus by touching a contaminated surface. Washing your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer kills the virus.
  2. Face – wearing a face covering over your mouth and nose can help protect other people from droplets containing the virus. If you have the virus you’re less likely to pass it on.
  3. Space – spreading the virus is much less likely to happen if you stay more than two metres apart from someone who has it.

Infections are falling in Staffordshire but we’ve still got more cases per 100,000 people than the West Midlands and England. With national restrictions coming to an end on 2 December, we need to do everything we can to stop the spread and get back to what matters most.
