Havering Council’s Director of Public Health, Dr Mark Ansell, has released a statement regarding the importance of following the current social distancing rules, as well as continuing to regularly wash our hands and other stated health measures. He has also given advice for employers and businesses.

The theme of his message is that if we do not continue to follow the current rules we risk a new rise in coronavirus cases and a possible second lockdown.
