In England, you must by law wear a face covering in the following settings:
- Public Transport
- Shops and Supermarkets as of 24 July 2020
Because face coverings are mainly intended to protect others, not the wearer, from coronavirus (COVID-19) they are not a replacement for social distancing and regular hand washing. It is important to follow all the other government advice on coronavirus (COVID-19) including staying safe outside your home.
How to wear a face covering
A face covering is something which safely covers the nose and mouth. You can buy reusable or single-use face coverings. You may also use a scarf, bandana, religious garment or hand-made cloth covering but these must securely fit round the side of the face. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer before putting on a face covering.
When removing a face covering:
- wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser before and after removing
- only handle the straps, ties or clips and do not share with someone else
- if single-use, dispose of it carefully in a residual waste bin and do not recycle
- if reusable, wash it in line with manufacturer’s instructions at the highest temperature appropriate for the fabric
How many Coronavirus cases in Cambridge?
Local authorities are now getting much better quality data to inform their work in local outbreak control of Covid-19. Public Health England data from Test and Trace indicate there were 324 confirmed cases from both hospital testing (Pillar 1) and community testing (Pillar 2) in Cambridge on July 16th.
Mill Road Bridge
(From Councillor Linda Jones)
The emergency changes on Mill Rd got off to a shaky start but on Thursday 9th July the cameras on Mill Rd bridge were installed. They capture traffic movements and will record registration plate numbers so motorists crossing the bridge are liable to be fined.
Dedicated road marking and signage has now been installed so traders should see much clearer notices and through traffic should be more effectively deterred from entering Mill Rd.
