Milton Keynes Council calls for COVID-19 measures following rise in cases

    MK Council is calling on residents, businesses and schools to take COVID-19 measures seriously over the autumn and winter.

    On 18th October, the number of new positive cases reported for MK reached 248, with over 200 new cases reported on the 19th and 20th October.

    Director of Public Health for Milton Keynes Vicky Head said: “We know that measures like wearing a face covering in busy places, opening windows to provide good ventilation, maintaining social distancing wherever possible, and regular testing along with hand washing will help control COVID-19. 

    "Getting vaccinated is the single biggest thing you can do to protect yourself and your family, but we can’t rely on vaccination alone to keep the pressures on the NHS to a manageable level.”

    Leader of Milton Keynes Council Cllr Pete Marland said: “COVID-19 hasn’t gone away and our hospital is very busy. In addition to getting vaccinated, we all need to remember the importance of testing along with the ‘hands, face, space - and fresh air’ measures we can take to make sure our rates do not climb any higher.”
