Hertfordshire County Council and Three Rivers District Council have issued a joint statement on the rising COVID-19 infection rates across the district.
There has been a rise in cases across the district, particularly in Croxley Green, Moor Park, Northwood and South Oxhey.
A joint statement from councillor Tim Hutchings, Cabinet Member for public health and prevention at Hertfordshire County Council, and councillor Sarah Nelmes, Leader of Three Rivers District Council, said:
“We can confirm that COVID-19 infection rates in the district of Three Rivers have been rising, particularly in Croxley Green, Moor Park and Northwood, and South Oxhey, with all age groups affected so we need residents to carefully follow the government’s guidance to minimise the risks of spreading the virus any further and to keep communities safe.
“That means continuing to play your part by wearing face-coverings where expected, washing your hands regularly, observing social-distancing and keeping to the ‘rule of six’. Full information can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
“It’s vitally important we all work together, to stop the number of cases rising in the district, if we are to avoid tougher measures being introduced.
“If you think that you may have come into contact with someone with COVID-19, you should self-isolate for 14 days. If you have some of the coronavirus symptoms, you should call 119 or book a test at gov.uk/coronavirus”
