Staffordshire County Council have today introduced additional public health guidance specifically for the wards of Anglesey, Shobnall, Horninglow and Eton Park.
I understand this will cause concern locally but residents in these areas must act now and follow these measures to avoid any potential future local lockdown in these wards. The new measures from the Council are reasonable and sensible and if followed will help avoid stricter measures being necessary in these four wards.
We must act now to avoid negative consequences in the future
New guidance from Staffordshire County Council in full:
Cases and close contacts: Anyone who gets symptoms must stay home for ten days and get a Covid-19 test. Close contacts must stay at home for 14 days. Spot checks will be made to make sure people are in
