Covid-19 activity in Herefordshire continues to be quiet, with only a couple of cases per day diagnosed in the county at present. We now have good capacity for testing, and anyone with symptoms should take a test as this is the only way we will be able to recognise and stop Covid-19 spreading around our community.
The government has now also agreed that face coverings are worthwhile when in public and will be mandatory on public transport from Monday 15th June. Coverings protect people around you, so they are most effective when everyone wears them when out and about. This, along with continued regular handwashing and social distancing measures, means we can reduce the spread of Covid-19 significantly.
Further information on arranging a Covid-19 test is available online at 111.nhs.uk .
Those still having to isolate or shield will be able to access food & medication deliveries through the Ross Good Neighbours Scheme (RGNS) by contacting them on their dedicated message line – 01763 802046.
