Sefton Council will lead in a minute’s silence to remember those who have passed away from COVID-19 in the borough.
Sadly 272 people in the borough have lost their lives through COVID-19 and they will be remembered during a minute’s silence at the start of the next Cabinet Meeting of Sefton Council from 10am on Thursday, June 25.
The silence will be led by Cllr Ian Maher, Leader of Sefton Council and Chief Executive Dwayne Johnson, with residents across the borough encouraged to fall silent at the same time.
Cllr Ian Maher said:
“We will never forget those who have fought so bravely against the COVID-19 virus and our thoughts are with everyone who has lost loved ones during this pandemic.
“We understand that this is a very difficult time for anyone who has lost a relation, a friend or a colleague and our deepest sympathies go out to those who are grieving.
“Please if you wish to join us from 10am on Thursday, June 25 in falling silent as a mark of remembrance to those we have lost.”

Key NHS and care workers can now attend regional testing sites, which now include the new site at Liverpool John Lennon Airport as well as Haydock and Manchester Airport without the need for an appointment.
Testing is vital to the ongoing work to overcome COVID-19 and enables key workers who test negative to return to that work. Almost 4,200 people have already been tested so far at Sefton’s Mobile Test Sites, which have been supported by Sefton Council, NHS Southport and Formby CCG and NHS South Sefton CCG.
Through the Government’s NHS Test and Trace service, anyone who tests positive for coronavirus will be contacted and will need to share information about their recent interactions. It is really important you follow the NHS guidance to stop the spread of coronavirus in Sefton.

After these three days in Southport, the next scheduled visit for a Mobile Test site to Litherland from Thursday 25 to Saturday 27 June, and back in Maghull and Southport from Sunday 28 to Tuesday 30 June.
