CORONA VIRUS/COVID-19

INFORMATION AND SUPPORT

The Parish Council continues to work  on your behalf to mitigate the effect that the Corona Virus/Covid-19 is having on your lives and all of us on the Council hope that you continue to be well, that you know what is going on and that you have all the support you need. 

In addition to previous guidelines, the Government has authorised further relaxation of the lock down rules.

 

From Saturday 4th July the 2 metre Social Distancing rules will still apply, although where that is not possible, 1 metre + is permissible in certain circumstances with some protection:

·       You may meet in groups of up to two households in any location, public or private, indoors or outdoors.

·       You may continue to meet in groups of 6 individuals outside only.

·        Some businesses and venues, including pubs, restaurants and hotels may open providing that they are taking Covid precautions.

·       Other public places, such as libraries, places of worship and outdoor gyms may open.

·       You may stay overnight with one other household, or your “Bubble” as previously allowed.

·       It will be against the law to gather in groups larger than 30 people.

 

Please remember that the Covid-19 virus is still very active and that the Government is trusting us to act responsibly. Only by doing so will we prevent a second spike of the virus,  So please

STAY ALERT

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Work from home if you can
  • Limit contact with other people
  • Keep your distance if you go out – 2 metres apart where possible, but 1+ metre if not
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms

Full NHS advice is at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ 

Obviously, this raises a lot of questions and more guidance on what you can and cannot do from Saturday 4th July can be found at:

We recommend that you look at this carefully before deciding on any future social or other events. Only by following these instructions will we protect ourselves, our family and friends and the many  people, including the NHS and others who are working hard to ensure our well-being. In this parish, we are very fortunate to have a network of volunteers all striving to make sure that we all, and especially the vulnerable, are catered for, in every way, during the “lock down”.

The Local Covid-19 Community Network (LCCN), working in Warbleton, Rushlake Green offers a wide range of services from food and medication delivery to telephone calls to the isolated. You can find out more about these services and how to access them at: https://rushlakegreenvillage.co.uk/lccn-how-to-get-help/

A list of volunteers, which includes Parish Councillors, is at: https://rushlakegreenvillage.co.uk/lccn-background-people/

They have produced a leaflet which should have now been delivered to residents in Rushlake Green, Warbletonand Three Cups. It explains how to access help and how to volunteer to help: https://rushlakegreenvillage.co.uk/lccn-leaflet/

Residents of Bodle Street Green will have separately received contact details of local volunteers who can provide assistance for shopping and collecting prescriptions/medicine or someone to talk to if feeling lonely during self isolation or lockdown.

Finally, in the local area, The Village Stores in Rushlake Green is playing a major part in keeping us supplied during this difficult time. There is more about the wonderful service they are providing in the leaflet and you can place orders either by phone on 01435 830381, or by email to rgvs@btinternet.com
