Most people are abiding by the rules. However the latest testing information shows a large rise in positive coronavirus cases in Ipswich. Residents and businesses must act now to reduce the spread of the coronavirus if we are to avoid people becoming ill as well as the possibility of further restrictions being necessary in the town after the end of the national lockdown.
There is evidence that a large number of cases in Ipswich involve household transmission, especially where people are visiting friends and family.
People in Suffolk have been good at following the guidance to keep infection rates down, but we must do the following to address this current increase:
- Stay at home as much as possible, avoiding unnecessary journeys and work from home if you can. You must not leave or be outside of your home except for specific reasons.
- You should minimise time spent outside your home and reduce the number of people you come into contact with.
- Remember – ‘Hands. Face. Space.’
