Are you visiting Cornwall?

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.
