Compliance with isolation measures

The Prefect of Lot, the departmental direction of the ARS, the direction of the CPAM of Lot appeal to the civility and sense of responsibility of all those who would test positive for covid-19, whatever the strain or variant, and in all contact cases identified in the context of contact tracing operated by the CPAM teams to scrupulously respect the isolation measures intended to break the chain of contamination. It is also on this condition that it will be possible at local level to control the spread of the virus.

Alongside the healthcare teams and local elected officials, the State services call on the population of the Lot not to relax their vigilance and to react by participating massively in the screening and vaccination operations made available to all. Continuing to respect barrier gestures is also essential;

The State services would like to thank all the actors mobilized in the service of public health in the Lot. Faced with a variant that is progressing rapidly, everything is now decided for this summer and for the start of the school year.
