Hull Issued with Covid Street Teams by Government for Easter Weekend



People are being urged to act responsibly, socially distance and follow the current coronavirus safety advice this Easter bank holiday weekend.

The coronavirus infection rate in Hull remains high which makes it even more important that people remain vigilant.

Tim Fielding, assistant director for public health in Hull, said: “I know people are excited about spending time with friends and family this weekend but it is vitally important that we all continue to follow the advice and guidance in order to protect ourselves, our neighbours and our city.

“There is no reason why we can’t all enjoy the weekend whilst acting responsibly, taking on board the necessary safety precautions and advice.”

Changes to coronavirus restrictions on Monday 29 March mean that people can now meet outdoors in groups of up to six. Outdoor sport and leisure facilities have also reopened. The stay local message still applies, with people asked to minimise their journeys.

It is still vitally important that people socially distance, wash their hands and wear face coverings where necessary.

Coronavirus information teams will be visible in Hull this weekend providing extra support and guidance to residents.

Hull is one of 20 areas throughout the country to have been offered the special teams by government.

As well as offering safety advice and guidance, they will also be able to provide residents with information about the vaccination programme.

You can find out more about the vaccination programme here.

They will be accompanied by Hull’s street marshals, who continue to be deployed throughout the city to offer support and remind people of the importance of social distancing and coronavirus safety measures.

The street marshals will focus on areas that are likely to be popular places for people to meet, such as on Hull Marina and in the city’s parks.
