Billboards rolling into town to warn of Coronavirus risk

Posted on Saturday 25th July 2020
Coronavirus2 newsroom

Billboards will be rolling into Burton to raise awareness with residents of the continued risk of coronavirus.

The information, which will be displayed on billboards and in bus shelters from next week, reminds residents to keep following government advice, and to prevent the spread of the virus.

Between July 4 and July 22 there have been 58 confirmed cases in Burton, with the majority of these centred in Anglesey, Shobnall, Horninglow and Eton Park.

Leader of Staffordshire County Council Alan White said:

“It’s important to keep following the rules to stop the spread of Covid-19. These billboards are just the latest step in our efforts to remind people of the importance of regular handwashing, keeping your distance, and wearing a face covering in shops or on public transport.

“The people of Burton have responded brilliantly to the advice and guidance on preventing the spread of Covid-19.  There has been spike in cases in Burton recently, and while there are no plans to introduce any “lockdown” restrictions at the moment, we are making it clear that it is crucial that people in Burton do everything they can to help prevent the spread of infection further.

“Most importantly, if people have any of the symptoms of Covid-19 – a high temperature, a new persistent cough or a loss of taste or smell, they need to stay at home and book a test.

“By continuing their fantastic response to this issue, I’m confident that communities in Burton can beat this virus.”
