COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Advice

Whenever you are out and about, remember to ‘Take 2’ steps away from others


Members of the public are reminded to ‘Take 2’ large steps (two metres) away from others when they are out and about. This is approximately the length of an average bed.

The campaign which has been launched by Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) is being used to highlight the distance people need to maintain from each other to respect social distancing measures during the coronavirus outbreak.

With the UK entering its sixth week of lockdown, ‘Take 2’ aims to remind people that two metres is a greater distance than people might think. 

The more a person comes into contact with the droplets from coughs and sneezes of an infected person, the more likely they are to catch the infection. It is therefore extremely important to maintain a two metre distance.

The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad.
