After seven weeks of uncertainty the government has finally sent a strong clear message, to stay alert.
And the public has responded by checking behind them, around the corner, and underneath the sofa.
Local man, Peter Thape is no longer staying at home, but is keeping an eye out for the virus, in case it leaves an unattended bag somewhere.
‘It may be invisible, but it’s not going to sneak up on me,’ said Thape.
‘I’m out of the house now, looking everywhere for it,’ he added.
