Suffolk Resilience Forum (SRF) partners are working tirelessly to tackle the spread of the virus in the county.
With the most recent government announcement there has been some relaxation of the rules and it’s clear that we’re now entering a different phase; however, the general principles have not changed and it is important that locally, we understand what is expected of us.
The SRF’s public response to this next phase – the ‘Stick With It Suffolk’ campaign – was launched on Monday 18 May to encourage Suffolk residents to continue to do the right thing.
The core messages are:
- Keep staying at home
- Keep working from home where you can
- Keep 2 metres apart if you go out
- Keep exercising safely
- Keep washing your hands with soap and water
- Keep travelling by car, bike or walking
- Keep staying safe at work
- Keep self-isolating if you or anyone in your household has symptoms
- Keep shielding yourself if you’re vulnerable
- Keep supporting local businesses
- Keep looking out for each other.
We have led with the word ‘keep’ because we want you to maintain the behaviours that you’re already doing.
Our plea to you is to #StickWithItSuffolk and if possible, share your stories using the hashtag #StickWithItSuffolk on social media.
