Residents urged to make personal Covid-secure plan
Residents of North Lincolnshire are being urged to make a personal Covid-secure plan to help stop the spread of the virus in the event that they need to self-isolate.
The plan can be created using a downloadable template from the council website.
It will help people finalise and share information regarding what help they would need and who would have to be informed.
It also helps people to think about the ways they can minimise their risk to others.
Council leader Rob Waltham has become the first to complete the plan.
“Protecting the most vulnerable people has to be our priority and we do that by ensuring the spread of Covid-19 is contained.
“Only if we have a plan can we properly combat Covid-19 – this means thinking carefully and in a detailed way about what measures we are taking; this includes ourselves, our family, friends and neighbours and while at work.
“We have been working closely with businesses, care homes, schools and many other organisations to plan for preventing the spread and managing outbreaks.
“Now it is time for each person in North Lincolnshire to have their own plan.
“All of this is avoidable, there are ways to stop the spread – we know hand washing, wearing face coverings and keeping a distance work. If people take just a few minutes to download this plan and spent a little more time discussing it with their family and filling it in then we can all better protect the most vulnerable people in North Lincolnshire.”
The news comes as coronavirus cases for North Lincolnshire top 2,000.
