Lincolnshire health bosses await details of ambiguous ‘stay alert’ rules
Those leading the response to coronavirus in Lincolnshire say they have been left waiting in the dark following the Prime Minister’s speech on Sunday.
Both Deputy Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police Jason Harwin and Director of Public Health at Lincolnshire County Council Derek Ward said they would be watching the parliamentary debate later today closely to learn more about how the county will move on.
In the speech, Mr Johnson announced a “conditional plan” to open the country back up, including a new ‘stay alert’ slogan (which has been rejected in Scotland and Wales ) and a five tier alert system.
Both leaders said the key message they had taken away was that the government was going “slowly and carefully” but acknowledged there were “difficulties” presented in the report around people going back to work and carrying out “unlimited exercise”.
Mr Harwin said the “devil will be in the detail.”
