Suffolk needs supermarket customers to follow basic safety guidelines to stop COVID-19 from spreading. Shoppers are being reassured that supermarkets are safe to visit, however shopping must be for essential items and trips kept to a minimum. If you are planning a trip to a supermarket or shop, it is important to follow these steps, even if you have received a vaccination:

  • Wash/sanitise your hands at the store entrance
  • Wear a facemask, unless medically exempt
  • Enter the shop alone, unless you are assisting or caring for another
  • Follow the signage and rules provided by the supermarket
  • Only touch products that you are intending to purchase
  • Keep your distance from other shoppers in the aisles and when in queues
  • Wash/sanitise your hands at the store exit

In the last week of reported data up to 27th January there have been 190 cases in Babergh, 604 cases in East Suffolk, 486 cases in Ipswich, 228 cases in Mid Suffolk and 476 cases in West Suffolk. All areas have decreased in cases since last week. Please continue to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.
