Bedford council urges people to wear a mask as Covid cases rise
The council is urging people to think about wearing masks again as cases start to rise in the town.
In a tweet put out at noon today (Tuesday), the council said: “As Covid-19 cases begin to rise please consider wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces.
“Whilst not a legal requirement wearing a face covering helps stop the spread of Covid-19.”
Over a five-day period, Bedford had 446 new cases. The Government will update the new cases again on Wednesday.
