I want to make it clear that we want a package that protects people locally. Business, employment and education, be it for Level 2 or Tier 3 and its details will need to be discussed with the government first.
“However, we are not waiting for the government to take action against the city’s growing cowardice case – finally about a week before the government put us in Tear Two, we issued clear advice not to mix your household with other households. Bubble. We are leading again this week. And writing to supermarkets to request that they restore the time allotted for the elderly and vulnerable. We are considering other community facilities where it can be re-introduced.
“We have only been kept in two tiers and the infection rate is declining. I want to thank everyone for their ongoing efforts to follow the rules, prevent the spread of the virus and help save lives and livelihoods.”
“It’s encouraging that the overall number of positive cases seems to be declining, but the number of people over the age of 5 who have tested positive has gradually increased, which could translate to more hospital admissions. We are currently in Tier 2 and This means observing the rules of hands, face, space and six, as well as not mixing in your house or with someone who is not a bubble in the house. If someone believes that they may have symptoms of covid, it is self-isolated and calls 119. Arrange a test. “
