Recent Government updates:
UPDATE 1st June:
Following the Prime Minister’s statement on Saturday 28th May, there are a limited number of things you can do starting for Monday 1st June. Although it opens up the opportunity for greater exercise and outdoor recreation, certain areas remain closed including playgrounds and outdoor gyms.
SAGE advise that the risk of infection outside is significantly lower than inside, so the Government is updating the rules so that, as well as exercise, people can now also spend time outdoors too.
You can now spend time outdoors, including private gardens and other outdoor spaces, in groups of up to six people from different households, following social distancing guidelines (social distancing guidelines to remain two metres (6ft) away from people outside your household; good hand hygiene, and disinfecting – particularly with respect to shared surfaces).
People may exercise outside as many times each day as they wish. For example, this would include angling and tennis. You will still not be able to use areas like playgrounds, outdoor gyms or ticketed outdoor leisure venues, where there is a higher risk of close contact and touching surfaces. You can exercise in a group up to 6 people from outside your household, so long as you can socially distance.
People may drive to outdoor open spaces irrespective of distance, so long as they respect social distancing guidance while they are there.
When travelling to outdoor spaces, it is important that people respect the rules in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and do not travel to different parts of the UK where it would be inconsistent with guidance or regulations issued by the relevant devolved administration.
These measures may come with some risk; it is important that everyone continues to act responsibly, as the large majority have done to date. The infection rate will increase if people begin to break these rules and this may trigger the need for further restrictions.
Additional documents have been issued to support the Plan above these include Staying alert and safe (social distancing), Staying safe outside your home and Coronavirus outbreak FAQs: what you can and can’t do.
Cambourne Town Council requests that you adhere to the UK Government’s guidance for the safety of the residents and council staff.
