Do your bit to prevent the spread of COVID

Posted on Wednesday 16 September 2020

Public services in Dorset are urging all residents, businesses and students to ‘do your bit’ and stay alert to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This early warning is being made by Sam Crowe, Director of Public Health for Dorset and BCP Councils, following the recent increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in Dorset.

Sam Crowe, Director of Public Health for Dorset and BCP Councils said:

“We are starting to see a gradual rise in cases and in some instances, people not adhering to the instructions to self-isolate.

“If you are showing symptoms, it’s vital that you self-isolate so that you can protect yourself, your family and friends.

“If you are contacted by the NHS Test and Trace service and are asked to self-isolate, this must be for the full 14 days even if you feel well or have a negative test result.”

A new campaign is being launched to remind everyone what they need to do. ‘Do it for…’ is asking everyone to think about friends, family, work colleagues and front-line workers and do your bit to prevent further action being needed.
