TWO graphic posters that show how easily Covid-19 spreads have been unveiled by the Leader of Solihull Council, Councillor Ian Courts.
Urging everyone to follow the lockdown rules, Coun Courts emphasised that it is people in enclosed spaces who are at the biggest risk.
“People are spreading the virus and it is from being in close contact indoors,” he said.
“The posters make it clear how it is happening.
“Currently we are not allowed to meet other people indoors (unless that person is in your support bubble).
“It is against the current rules.”
The poster launch comes as the Covid infection rate in Solihull hit 318 in 100,000 people between November 6 to 12.
Coun Courts added: “This lockdown is our opportunity to reduce contact with others to a bare minimum and to begin reducing the infection rate.
“If we do this, we can look forward to fewer restrictions on our lives as we head towards the New Year.
“But to reduce the restrictions we must all continue taking the necessary precautions and follow the guidance about hands, face, space.
“If you meet one other person outside your household, it must be outdoors and you must still observe social distancing.
“Look out for the posters to see just how easy it is to become infected indoors.
“By understanding the risks, we can play our part in stopping the virus spreading and do the right thing for ourselves and for Solihull.
“And if you have any symptoms, get a test and self-isolate – it’s that simple.”
