Bedfordians are being urged to follow ‘Hands, Face, Space and Fresh Air’ advice this bank holiday weekend, after cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) rose across the Borough.
Following the lifting of some restrictions on 12 April, we are able to meet with another household or in a group of up to six people outside.
But there are concerns some people are meeting inside when the weather is cold or wet.
With cool temperatures and rain forecast this weekend, people are being reminded, they cannot meet people inside.
Vicky Head, Director of Public Health at Bedford Borough Council said: “…people have made incredible efforts to slow the spread of the virus and keep our communities safe…
“We’ve seen an increase in cases over recent days so we are asking everyone to continue following hands, face, space and fresh air advice.
“If you’re meeting up with friends and family stay safe, wrap up warm and stay outside to stop the virus spreading.”
