The Omicron variant B2 continues to infect many people. It is more transmissible that previous variants. Although for many the symptoms of infection are less, for many others it can be pretty devasting and lead to hospital admission (with all the impact that has on the whole hospital) and in some cases death.


Stop omicron


For that reason, we ask everyone to consider wearing a face covering in all those areas you would have before, namely shops and crowded places. Even our local shops can get crowded and be a bit claustrophobic and perhaps not feel well ventilated. Please wear a mask in such shops to protect other customers and the staff, and maybe even yourselves.


Should you or your family feel the need to call an ambulance, as a courtesy to the attending staff or responder, we would ask that the patient and others in the room wear a face covering until advised by the ambulance staff that they may be removed. Thank you.
