This Thursday, England will enter Lockdown 2.0. We have done it before, and we can come together as a community once again to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keep everyone safe.
COVID-19 case numbers are rising rapidly across the whole of the UK. Our NHS frontline staff continue the daily fight to help save lives, with so many of our own local people across Woking working day and night to support those most vulnerable.
So, we are all in.
The single most important action we can all take together in fighting coronavirus is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives. We are ready to do what it takes to control the spread of the virus, and we will play our part as a community by staying apart.
When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection. There are also simple ways we can continue to protect each other at times when we must leave our homes for specific purposes. Just remember: Hands. Face. Space.
-Wash your hands regularly
-Wear face coverings
-Stay 2 metres apart from those you do not live with
If you have symptoms, you must self-isolate, get tested and provide details of contacts if you test positive. We can also protect each other by downloading the NHS App.
The new guidelines also include restriction of all gatherings with people you do not live with and the closure of certain businesses and venues. These new lockdown measures will apply nationally for 4 weeks up until Wednesday 2nd December, after which it will be reviewed based on the latest data.
We can, and will, do another lockdown. For the sake of our families and our community, let’s stay safe and get through this together. Even when we’re apart, we can all stay connected on the #WEAREWOKING social channels.

Thank you and stay safe.
