The Leader of Hertsmere Borough Council, councillor Morris Bright MBE, has released a statement in response to this weekend’s activity in Hertsmere co-ordinated by Hertfordshire Local Resilience Forum to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
He said: “The last thing any of us want to see is the spread of coronavirus in our community.
“We have to continue to act to prevent this current increase in the number of cases in the borough from spiralling further upwards. We do not want more deaths and untold woe for sufferers and their families.
“Wear a face covering; keep your distance; wash your hands more frequently and for longer; and if you are showing symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you must self-isolate for 14 days.
“Thank you to all those who are helping to ram home that message in our town centres and high streets this weekend.
“Let’s work together to contain this threat and keep our community safe and well.”
