Denbighshire County Council is reminding residents of the importance of social distancing, to help the fight against covid-19.
The county is preparing to enter the third week of local restrictions, and the council says that whilst the vast majority of Denbighshire residents have been adhering to social distancing guidelines, now is the time to keep up the good work and encourage everyone to continue to follow the health and hygiene guidelines.
The council, working with its partners across North Wales, has been running its #keepyourdistance campaign over recent weeks, with messages being shared on social media, in the press and in communities.
Many organisations across North Wales have supported the campaign by sharing the information, to reach as wide an audience as possible.
Councillor Hugh Evans OBE, Leader of Denbighshire County Council, who are co-ordinating the campaign, said: “We are proud of the efforts of communities in Denbighshire. They have really played their part in trying to stop the spread of covid-19 across our region but we are asking everyone to step up and think about the health and well-being of friends, family and the wider community.
“It’s more important now than ever to continue to social distance. We have been seeing increases in the number of cases across Wales and we are concerned that the position will continue to escalate unless we all play our part and follow the stringent social distancing and hygiene measures.
“We have seen anecdotal evidence of people not social distancing. This is an issue facing all areas of Wales and all we can do is continue to remind people of the social distancing regulations and hope they take notice.
“Our #Keepyourdistance campaign has been gathering momentum, with organisations and individuals sharing the messages on social media.
"We thank people for their support and hope that people take notice of the message. We must continue in our efforts to try and halt the increase in the cases in Denbighshire."
