There’s still work to be done to beat coronavirus


09/09/2020

We’re supporting Oldham Council and asking all our customers to continue to take the risk of coronavirus seriously and comply with the guidelines to help save lives and prevent a further local lockdown.

Since the beginning of the pandemic everyone has made a lot of sacrifices but we know that coronavirus is still circulating across the borough and it’s challenging all of us.

Coronavirus infection rates across Greater Manchester soared over the last week, and Oldham Council Leader Sean Fielding said “If people become complacent and don’t follow the restrictions, we’re in danger of rates rising, and of a tougher local lockdown being enforced. And no one wants that.”

For the latest updates regarding coronavirus in Oldham, keep checking Oldham Council's website or call the dedicated coronavirus helpline, available Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm on 0161 770 7007.

New national guidance comes into force on Monday 14 September

The government has announced new measures to suppress the virus and keep the number of infections down.

From Monday 14 September, you must not meet with people from other households socially in groups of more than 6. This will apply indoors and outdoors, including in private homes. But it will not apply to schools, workplaces or covid-secure weddings, funerals and organised team sports.

It will be enforced through a £100 fine if people fail to comply, doubling on each offence up to a maximum of £3,200.
