Wolverhampton is Complying!

In a recent briefing I have received its very pleasing to be told that.

“People and businesses in Wolverhampton continue to show a high level of compliance with the Covid-19 regulations, following the latest day of action by the police and council on Tuesday 26th Jan 2021..

The vast majority of people were maintaining social distancing and wearing face coverings, while most shops and businesses were also complying with the measures in place to keep infections down. Although in the main people were following the regulations, police issued eight fixed penalty notices – including fines to the five occupants of one car, all from different households, who were out socialising.

In addition, 83 directions to leave were issued affecting 161 people who did not have a valid reason to be out. It is currently against the law to meet socially with family or friends unless they are part of the same household or support bubble or to leave home for recreational or leisure purposes.”

I think that reading this will be pleasing to the majority. Its great that so many are complying. Please note that a further day of action is planned during this next week.
