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.
