Message from Cornwall Association of Local Councils
Are you visiting Cornwall? Have you just arrived? If you choose to go against government advice and not go home, then please stay in your holiday home/ accommodation
AND SELF-ISOLATE FOR 7 DAYS
Cornwall has ONE hospital for the whole county and we have an elderly population. We will struggle to cope with the Coronavirus outbreak as it is without the pressure of many more people.
Get provisions in, stay at ‘home’ and spread the word:
Don’t go out
Don’t go to the shops
Don’t go for a walk
Don’t pop to the beach
Don’t take the dog out
Don’t nip out to watch the sunset
Don’t check the surf
Stay at home
Thank you for helping to protect this community.
Official HM Government advice: essential travel does NOt include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar whether for isolation purposes or holidays. people should remain in their primary residence. Not to do so puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.

Yesterday, a group comprising Parish Councillors, St Breward Stores & Post Office and some community members was set up to discuss how our community could be cared for during the on-going Covid-19 emergency, particularly ensuring that the elderly and vulnerable have access to the things they need.
1. The vulnerable: a list of individuals who may require assistance is being drawn up, whether for delivery of essential items, collection of essential medical prescriptions or anything else considered essential. If you know of someone, please contact Veronica Stansfield at firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that the individual is added to the list.
2. Volunteers: anyone who would be willing to help out with practical assistance and meets the following criteria:
a) being fit & healthy b) have no underlying health conditions c) not sharing a household with someone showing symptoms, however mild, or currently isolating d) under 70 years of age
