Statement from Leader of South Kesteven District Council,  Cllr Kelham Cooke

The Prime Minister made a very clear statement with major implications for us all. In the interests of containing the Coronavirus pandemic, each and every one of us must adapt to a new way of working and living in the coming days, weeks and months.

We have been asked to:

  • Stay at home
  • Take just one form of exercise outside per day, and only with family members who live in the same household
  • Restrict shopping to essential items of food and medical supplies
  • Only travel to work if it is essential

I am making a personal plea to all residents to do exactly what the Prime Minister has asked, for the sake of all our health. Only by complying with these restrictions can we hope to limit the spread of Coronavirus to protect ourselves, our families and our communities, and buy our amazing NHS valuable time to prepare and respond.

As we watch the numbers of diagnosed cases of Coronavirus increase in the UK and listen to what the scientific evidence is telling us,  it is clear that our individual actions can and will make a real difference. 

These are immensely challenging times. Let's join together and do our part to get through this unprecedented crisis.

Thank you.
