Humberside Police urging the public not to be “complacent” amid easing of restrictions

Humberside Police have issued a statement to the public in the wake of the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions being eased on Monday.

This comes after pubs, restaurants and cafes across the country are allowed once again to welcome guests inside.

Up to 30 people can also now meet outside and holiday accommodation is now permitted to open.

However, Humberside Police are urging local residents not to become “complacent” as there is “always the threat of a new strain”.

Assistant Chief Constable Darren Downs said: “I want to thank the residents of the Humberside Force area who have offered us unwavering support and have adhered to the guidelines since the beginning of the pandemic.

“Whilst it has been a strange and difficult time for many, sticking to the guidelines as we enter into the final month of the roadmap is vital for the safety of you and your loved ones.

“This is not the time to become complacent as there is always the threat of a new strain. Remain vigilant and cautious.

“However, we are now in a much more positive position from where we were just a few months ago as the vaccine rollout has surpassed the proposed timescales and the roadmap can hopefully continue as planned.”
