RSN update 22nd November

A new public health behaviours campaign ‘Stop COVID-19 hanging around’ has launched demonstrating the importance of simple actions, and how they reduce the risks of catching COVID-19 this winter; such as ventilation, face coverings and testing. With around one in three people with COVID-19 showing no symptoms, the virus could be passed onto others without knowing. With fewer restrictions in place this winter following the success of the vaccination programme, the act of refreshing air in the home when people have visitors, testing before higher risk events and wearing face coverings in enclosed spaces, is even more important for everyone to keep infections down.

Legitimate Sources of Information

Hertfordshire Council is maintaining an information page with relevant links and up to the minute information about the virus here.

There is a plethora of good information online, but we’ll continue sharing anything relevant and useful to our community.

Unfortunately, with the virus outbreak comes rumour and speculation which you may start seeing much more often, including text copy/pasted on Facebook. The best rule of thumb is to not share the information, especially if it’s attributed to friends or relatives of people in the know. Remember, any changes or discoveries, etc. will be shared worldwide by legitimate news sources. Please always verify first before passing on second or third hand information.
