Warning for young people as Covid-19 cases rise rapidly
Published: Thursday, June 10, 2021
Coronavirus cases are on the rise again in Wandsworth especially amongst people aged 18-30. We are asking everyone to do what they can to help stop the spread of Coronavirus so we can all continue to enjoy the ease in restrictions.
You can play your part by following social distancing rules and the rule of six, getting tested regularly and encouraging your friends to do the same. Please continue to wash your hands, wear a face covering, make space, and meet in fresh air. If you have to meet indoors, remember to keep the area well ventilated. Please take the vaccine as soon as you are offered it.
If you are attending events or meeting up to watch the Euro 2021 matches, the rules still apply. Everyone needs to play a part in helping to stop the number of cases rising.
“Back in April, Wandsworth residents were fantastic in coming forward for surge testing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 variants and tens of thousands of people have already had their first and second COVID jab. It’s really important that we don’t waste the progress already made,” said Wandsworth’s Director of Public Health Shannon Katiyo.
“If you are meeting other people, take a test first, follow all social distancing rules and as soon as you are offered the vaccine, take it.
If we all pull together now we can stop the situation getting worse.”
Get vaccinated if you are eligible. The vaccine is now being offered to everyone over the age of 25yrs. If you have not yet been contacted by your GP, contact the NHS or call 119.
