Coronavirus: help keep Rotherham open

Over the last few weeks, we have thankfully moved a little bit back towards normality as the government’s Coronavirus lockdown measures have been lifted. However, the infection rate within Rotherham remains relatively high compared to the national average, people are still getting ill, and it’s still vitally important that we all keep doing our bit.

Rotherham’s Outbreak Engagement Board is responsible for communicating the key things that residents need to know, and it is Chaired by Council Leader Cllr Chris Read. You can watch the update that he gave to the council’s meeting last week by clicking here.

We know that the government guidance can be complicated, but please remember:

  • Keep two metres apart from others who don’t live with you as much as you can.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often with soap and warm water
  • Wear a face covering when you’re in public enclosed spaces. In shops, on buses, and in the hospital, this is especially important and you can be fined for breaking the rules. It might not protect you, but it will protect those around you.
  • If you have any symptoms at all, or if you’ve any other reason to be concerned, please get tested as soon as possible. Rotherham is operating extra tests because of our current situation, so please don’t hesitate to come forward.

There is regularly updated information on the council’s website here, including information about how to get a test.

If we all play our part, we can keep Rotherham open, get more council services operating normally sooner, and keep people alive.
