The leader of East Cambridgeshire District Council is urging residents to “think very carefully about their actions” during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Councillor Anna Bailey has made a video statement encouraging residents to continue following Government guidelines to “make the biggest impact”.
“We must not be complacent,” she said.
“The number of infections may seem like they are decreasing, but we are so far away from the minimal figures the district once had during the spring and summer of 2020.
“As we continue to face the impact of the new strain of COVID-19, it is more important than ever that we continue with our efforts and step up and do absolutely everything in our power to stop the spread of COVID-19.
