    Pembrokeshire County Council Leader, Councillor David Simpson, has provided a further coronavirus update for Friday, 9th October, as follows:

‘Welcome to another of my Leader’s Updates and I hope you are keeping safe and well.

‘This week I want to reach out to you all for support and help.

‘As you have seen from media updates, the country is still facing challenges in relation to the ongoing issues with the pandemic.

‘It is very challenging for all of us, however, we as individuals and collectively we can make a difference

‘Therefore, I am asking everyone to continue working hard as a team to ensure we keep this pandemic away from our doors. We all have a duty to pull together.

‘I’m so pleased to see our communities working together to ensure we support each other. Supporting each other also means we keep doing the right things. Letting our guard down or simply doing things against advice has a potential impact on everyone.

‘If we do not work together this will affect our recovery and impact on us all. I’m asking everyone today to pull together keep strong and most importantly keep moving forward in a positive way but remember the basic rules about how to keep Covid-19 numbers down.

‘It has been a very challenging time for me as it has for everyone and I have to remind myself that we will get through this. We all need to keep strong and support each other

‘We hear updates about Covid-19 figures across Wales and how Pembrokeshire has low numbers – we can keep the numbers low if we do the right things. We need to be reminded that we are not through this – keeping our guard up helps keep Covid away.

‘Come on everyone keep working together – please don’t be selfish and let this thing beat us.

‘As in my previous messages, I want to thank everyone for their support. As a county we are acting responsibly and appropriately, to the changes. I’m humbled at times to hear of all the support you re offering each other – fantastic and thank you.
