On Monday evening 04 January, the government announced a new NATIONAL LOCKDOWN STAY AT HOME
As Covid-19 cases continue to rise across Cornwall, Cornwall Council is holding a live Covid-19 public health update at 2pm on Friday, 8th January via Facebook Live
Cornwall Council Portfolio Holder for Children, Wellbeing and Public Health Councillor Sally Hawken Cornwall Council’s Director of Public Health, Rachel Wigglesworth and Public Health Consultant Dr Ruth Goldstein,
will present the latest Covid-19 data for Cornwall and take your questions.
WHAT YOU CAN AND CANNOT DO DO DURING THE NATIONAL
You must stay at home. The single most important action we can all take is to Stay at home to Protect the NHS and Save lives.
You should follow this guidance immediately. The law will be updated to reflect these new rules.
You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:
- shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person
- go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
- exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
- meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
- seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
- attend education or childcare – for those eligible
Colleges, primary and secondary schools will remain open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. All other children will learn remotely until February half term. Early Years settings remain open.
Higher Education provision will remain online until mid February for all except future critical worker courses.
If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local in the village, town, or part of the city where you live. You may leave your local area for a legally permitted reason, such as for work.
If you are clinically extremely vulnerable you should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential. You should not attend work
You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or are not in a support bubble with (if you are legally permitted to form one).
You may exercise on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble.
You should not meet other people you do not live with, or have formed a support bubble with, unless for a permitted reason.
Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household.
You can find the full rules on the gov.uk website
