NEW METHODS: Council introduce COVID-19 marshals in Northwood and Ruislip to reduce spread

Hillingdon Council deployed COVID-19 marshals across the borough recently to help drive down infection rates.

The marshals have visited different areas across the borough this month to help raise awareness of the national restrictions in place. 

They explained how the public should comply with COVID-19 public health measures such as social distancing, using face coverings and hand washing.

Marshals directed pedestrians through one-way systems and ensured properly spaced queues. In addition, they handed out pocket-sized hand sanitisers and face coverings and printed handouts containing more information. 

They also ensured local businesses were operating safely and reported any issues back to the council’s food health and safety team for further investigation.

Prior to the marshals’ use, councillor Sir Ray Puddifoot, Leader of Hillingdon Council, said: “Our COVID-19 marshals will be a visible and reassuring presence for residents and businesses, listening to people’s concerns and providing gentle reminders when necessary.

“Rates are still high and I urge residents to stay vigilant and to continue to follow the measures in place to protect our communities.”
