Thank you for you all you are doing to help reduce the spread and impact of coronavirus in Hertfordshire
David Williams, leader of the Hertfordshire County Council said:
“Sadly, coronavirus remains a serious issue and a real threat to the health and wellbeing of our residents. We all need to act now.
“If you are asked to self-isolate, you must do it. We know that lots of people don’t. If you don’t, you are putting people’s lives at risk, including your own family and friends, you are breaking the law, and could be fined.
“We know it’s hard right now, and the rules around self-isolation can make life even more difficult, there is support to help you and your family through this, but please do stick to the rules as this is genuinely a matter of life and death.
“Our actions now will determine how quickly we can get back to the lives we enjoyed before the start of the pandemic and rebuild our communities.”

Self-isolation means that you must not leave your home except in an emergency.
You can be asked to self-isolate by Test and Trace, a nursery, school, college, university, workplace or by any health professional – even if you have no symptoms, you must follow these rules:
- visit family or friends
- go to any shops or supermarkets - instead order food online or ask for help
- go outside to exercise or walk your dog
- go to work, university, college or school - instead work or study from home if you can
- use public transport, taxis or share a car
- attend parties or other events, even if these are outside.
