A statement from Cllr Sue Cooper, Leader of South Oxfordshire District Council
We support Ansaf Azhar, Oxfordshire County Council’s Director for Public Health’s message on the importance of continuing to follow the lockdown guidelines.
Whilst the daily rate of new Covid-19 figures can fluctuate, figures for the whole of Oxfordshire remain high, hospitalisations and deaths are rising, and as we know this new variant is extremely infectious. We therefore we need to be even more careful.
We must continue to stay at home, avoid mixing with other households, and stick to rules to curb the rapid spread of Covid-19. Stark figures for our county show things will not improve unless we all observe the lockdown rules in full.
This continues to be an incredibly challenging time, but we must continue to pull together and abide by the stringent rules in order to help drive down cases across the county.
It’s thanks to everyone playing their part that we can get through this together.
If you need any financial or practical support to enable you to stay at home safely please get in touch with the South and Vale Community Hub. It’s vital that communities continue to help each other and help keep each other safe.
