Council urges residents to continue to follow stay at home guidance

Tattenhall Online found the following on the YourWestCheshire.co.uk website, which sums up the present situation from a local perspective:

15 May 2020

Cheshire West and Chester Council is asking residents to continue to stay at home as much as possible following the Government announcement that eased some of the lockdown restrictions in England.

The easing of restrictions, though modest, is not without risk. It is important that everyone continues to act responsibly, as most people have done so far. The infection rate will increase if people break social distancing rules and gather in large groups in parks.

For the purpose of health and wellbeing, people may now exercise outdoors more than once a day, providing they:
only exercise alone, with members of their household or with one other person, continue to keep two metres apart at all times, follow good hygiene practices, particularly with respect to shared surfaces.

Those responsible for public places must also be able to put appropriate measures in place to follow COVID-19 public health guidelines. The Council is currently reviewing how it can reopen some of its facilities for sports and recreation taking into account the guidance provided and working with health teams to make sure that spaces are safe.

People are still not able to use facilities such as playgrounds or outdoor gyms, where there is a higher risk of close contact or touching surfaces.
