Lib Dem led Colchester Council have been praised for their local leadership through the pandemic.
Infection rates are low compared to many. We want to keep it that way!
We ask all of our communities to work together to encourage safe behaviours and use of the coronavirus contact tracing app.
As the software is voluntary, its success will depend heavily on how many people choose to download and use it. The app has Bluetooth enabled to keep an anonymous log of people a user has been close to.
If someone falls ill, they can tell the app, which will begin a process of locating those they may have been in contact with.
Lib Dem leader Mark Corey urges us all download the app today and do our bit to fight against this virus. 'Together, with just our phones, we can have an impact and protect ourselves, our loved ones, our neighbours and the town in which we live.'
A QR code scanning feature is also available, allows people to check-in to venues they visit and easily share their contact details for tracing efforts.
To keep us and our families and friends safe. Lib Dem led, your Council will do all it can for us all. Let's help.
We really are in this together.
