Ahead of the easing of lockdown restrictions this weekend, a director of public health said everyone still needs to "play their part in stamping out the virus".
Jim McManus, who works for Hertfordshire County Council, said of the new "one metre plus" that "we must all maintain social distancing, wash our hands regularly and thoroughly and follow the rules and guidance on face coverings".
"If you have any symptoms that could indicate you have coronavirus, it’s vitally important that you get a test," he said.
“Remember too that if you’re contacted by the national NHS Test and Trace team, you must follow their advice and self-isolate, to prevent the virus from taking hold in Hertfordshire again and threatening more lives.”
Tests can be booked online and drive-through testing sites are now open to everyone living or working in the county and for those that do not have access to a car or are too ill to drive, a test kit can be posted to them.
