Good Afternoon, Somersham District Members –
Very happily, there are no offences or incidents affecting your community to mention in our Policing Summary this week, covering the period 18th to 24th September.
However, here is some information about the current Coronavirus situation:
Coronavirus Latest Instructions and Guidance:
On Tuesday 22nd September, the Government announced new regulations to combat the increasing number of infections being reported across England, in addition to the ‘Rule of Six’ limiting the number of people from different households who can gather together announced last week.
The new instructions include the following:
Face Coverings – when and where they must be worn, and by whom, together with exceptions;
Working from Home – officer workers are encouraged to do so wherever possible;
Businesses – new regulations affecting the hospitality industry and stricter rules on making businesses premises COVID-secure;
Gatherings – new regulations on how many people are allowed to gather together, in various settings and for various purposes.
A full explanation of the regulations is on the Government web-site at:
Download the NHS Covid-19 Contact App:
The more people who use the new NHS Covid-19 app, the more we can keep each other safe and stop the infection from spreading. The app is a vital part of the NHS Test-and-Trace service in England, and is free to download for your smart-phone.
