Welcome to the seventh bulletin providing you with an update of what has been taking place across Morecambe Bay to tackle the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We are now seeing some “normality” return to the country – with shops re-opening and plans for bars, restaurants and foreign holidays being talked about. However the events in Leicester – where they have brought in a local lockdown – have shown that this is fragile and that the virus is still something which poses a threat to us.
We know from experience that the virus doesn’t take long to take hold and spread across communities. That’s why keeping social distancing is so important. While many media outlets talk about the government now recommending one metre plus for social distancing (one metre plus other mitigations such as sanitisers, face masks etc), it is really important not to lose sight that they recommend two metres be the norm where it is possible.
So please – as visitors return to the Morecambe Bay area and we see places re-open – continue to impress on colleagues and friends that where possible they remain two metres apart, limit contact where possible and continue to take precautions. We need to continue to protect our services across Morecambe Bay.
