Key workers urge residents to stay at home

Published: Friday, 24th April 2020

Frontline staff from across Kent and Medway are leading this weekend’s stay-at-home appeal to residents during the ongoing lock down.

A short video of key workers from across the county is aiming to flood social media channels today as emergency services, local councils, health partners and essential service providers from across the Kent Resilience Forum are again uniting to remind everyone to follow the Government’s advice by staying safe at home and only going out for essentials trips.

Those taking part in the #KentTogether campaign include a Kent Police officer, an NHS nurse, a doctor, a KCC community warden, local council workers, search and rescue and coastguard volunteers, water and power company employees, and many staff who are contributing to keeping vital services running during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Sevenoaks District Council Cabinet Member for ‘People and Places’, Cllr Lesley Dyball says “We are so grateful to our key workers for keeping services running throughout this difficult time. The best way we can thank them is by staying at home and keeping them and ourselves safe. Only leave your home to shop for basic essentials, for exercise or to help a vulnerable person. Do not visit friends or family or invite them to your home. If we all obey the guidelines, we can go back to normal sooner.”
