LOCAL LOCKDOWN RULES 22/09/2020

Posted on September 7th, 2020

We have seen an increase in people within the same household testing positive for Covid-19. At the beginning of August we were seeing an average of two people per day testing positive for Covid-19, we’re now up to 16-19 cases a day and rising. 

The freedoms we’ve all been enjoying in the recent months have led to a growing complacency – fewer people sticking to social distancing and mixing with other households in close contact. We would like to remind our patients it is very important to wash your hands, keep your distance, wear your face covering and if you think you have symptoms, self-isolate and get tested.

Wirral has continued to see a sharp rise in the number of people testing positive for COVID-19 in recent weeks.
On 18 September 2020, local lockdown measures for Merseyside, Warrington, Halton and Lancashire (excluding Blackpool and Greater Manchester) region were announced and will apply from Tuesday 22 September.

The new restrictions will include:
o Interhousehold mixing in private dwellings and gardens will be prohibited
o Hospitality sector (food and drink) limited to table service only
o Night-time economy subject to closing between 22:00 and 05:00
o Residents are advised to only use public transport for essential purposes, such as travelling to school or work
o Residents are advised against attending amateur and semi-professional sporting events as spectators

At the moment there is no need to worry about children returning to school. Our schools are taking huge precautions for our children, we must support the schools by following guidance and advice from the UK Government and health professionals.

What to do if you think you have covid-19 symptoms?

  • Self-isolate immediately.
