Lockdown: Key facts to remember

HOLIDAY HOMES
Guidance is clear, you are not allowed to go on holiday, or to visit second homes, except in exceptional circumstances. Full guidelines on the Government Covid-19 website.

If you have concerns re the abuse of this restriction which is now law. You can contact Cornwall Council on 0300 1231 118.

SHIELDED RESIDENTS
Those deemed to be clinically extremely vul- nerable and are employed are asked to work from home, while all are advised to go outside once a day for exercise when possible.

The Government should have written to all those who previously shielded to offer the latest advice. Anyone who needs support should contact our Cornwall Council dedi- cated support email address at covid19@cornwall.gov.uk.

MEETING WITH OTHERS
You can meet with one person from another household to exercise outdoors, and children under school age can attend those meetings.

Adults living alone are now allowed to form a support bubble with another similar household, meaning they can visit each other’s homes, stay overnight and meet in outdoor spaces.
