News from Herts Careline
Step 3 – cautiously does it, nearly there
We've made it to Step 3, albeit as it should be – very cautiously. We are now on Step 3 of the Prime Minister's government's roadmap to carefully ease lockdown restrictions in England. Thanks to the excellent progress of the vaccination programme and people keeping to the rules, the step by step approach continues forward.Fortunately for us, the pandemic has not negatively affected the Herts Careline service as we have still been able to be there for our customers during the pandemic, answering their calls for help in the usual way. We have also been able to welcome new customers by adhering to social distancing regulations whilst installing new equipment.
