A NEW information and communications campaign for the public - Keep Hampshire Safe - to support the delivery of Hampshire's Local Outbreak Control Plan has launched.

The aim of the campaign is to continue to promote important public health messaging designed to support the population to keep well, and reduce transmission of coronavirus, as well as ensuring that messaging relating to local outbreaks will reach communities across the county in a timely way.

Councillor Keith Mans, leader of Hampshire County Council and chairman of the local outbreak engagement board said: “Since February, we have been working closely with our partners in district and borough councils, the local NHS, Public Health England and other key organisations in response to the coronavirus pandemic to minimise the spread of the virus and help protect local residents and communities across Hampshire.

“Our priority now is to continue to Keep Hampshire Safe so that we can go on enjoying our new freedoms.

To ensure the public can keep up to date with what is happening across the county, a new webpage has been created www.hants.gov.uk/coronavirus which includes a number of resources and assets, and contains links to a new COVID-19 dashboard,
