Three Rivers says continue to Stay Safe

03rd July 2020

Three Rivers District Council is advising residents, visitors and businesses to adapt to the new ways of shopping and going out safely so that we can stop the spread of the virus. 

Restaurants, pubs, and bars are all getting ready to reopen to the public from Saturday 4 July. We need to ensure that we keep safety and hygiene standards in mind. This will help keep the pandemic rates down. 

Remember, when visiting allowed groups that you only two households or bubbles can meet. When sitting outside, no more than six people should meet, social distancing continues. Businesses may ask you for your personal details upon entering their premises. They will keep this information for a short while. It is vital to the NHS tracing you should you be at risk of contracting the disease. 

Most venues will operate table-only service and contactless payments may be the only way for you to pay. Please follow the venue rules which may vary slightly from place-to-place. You may need to book in advance, so call before you visit them!

Cllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst, Lead Member for Transport and Economic Development, said: “It is good to see that businesses will now reopen safely. The health and wellbeing of our businesses and communities are of utmost importance. So please continue to follow the guidance, keep at a social distance, take precautions to help prevent another lockdown.” 

“It is essential to keep COVID-19 at bay so I urge residents to stay safe by keeping 2 meters apart. If that is not possible, please wear a face mask and regularly wash your hands.”  

Stay alert, stay safe.
