Covid and me
To show how Covid-19 has impacted Surrey residents, the Local Resilience Forum Communications Group has teamed up with local broadcaster Peter Gordon, to launch a mini-series of personal stories from people who have experienced Covid.
Rates remain high across the county and unlike the first lockdown last year, more and more people know someone who’s had Covid. There are many different experiences, different symptoms and impacts and through the series COVID and Me, we are sharing those experiences, to help people understand and be more aware of the risks.
In this area, three residents have shared their stories to help reinforce the message that we all need to follow the guidelines, stay at home and do our bit to keep Surrey safe.
