Preston North End are encouraging supporters and all members of the local community to follow the advice of Preston City Council to help prevent a local lockdown.
The Council are urging the Preston community to pull together in a joint effort to prevent the implementation of stricter lockdown measures following a spike of coronavirus cases in the city.
Preston City Council are calling for residents to take extra precautions, including:
- Avoiding visitors in your home
- Wearing a face covering in enclosed public spaces - including places of worship
- Getting tested if you have symptoms, even if they are mild
These steps are in addition to the commonly shared messages regarding regularly washing and sanitising your hands and giving each other enough space to social distance.
Adrian Phillips, Chief Executive at Preston City Council, said: “We all – young and old alike - have a role to play in keeping ourselves, our friends, families and communities safe from this virus.
“None of us want a local lockdown to be introduced, and so, following a spike in cases we are proactively working with partners to prevent the situation from worsening.
“We’re urging everyone to be diligent and play their part. Right now that means as well as washing hands and giving each other space, we are asking you to help us protect our city by taking these additional measures.
“It is not over yet, but we can work together to minimise the risk for Preston.”
Preston City Council is working in close partnership with Lancashire County Council as well as community and faith groups to ensure all communities are exercising increased caution and following public health guidance.
