Cornwall Council is urging residents to make sure they know and follow the new Government rules which come into effect next week.

Cornwall Council’s Public Health team is warning that those who break or bend the rules risk allowing COVID-19 to creep back into our communities.

This would not only put the lives of our most vulnerable residents at risk, it would also jeopardise our route out of lockdown and back to doing the things we love.

In brief, the rule changes from Monday (March 29) are:

  • People can meet outside, including in private gardens, either with one other household or as a group of six.
  • The ‘stay at home’ rule will end, but people are encouraged to ‘stay local’ and to keep travel to a minimum.
  • Outdoor sports facilities such as golf courses and tennis courts can reopen, and organised outdoor sport can take place.

As a result of these changes the Parish Council have re-opened all areas of the Playing Field. Remember to keep your distance (Hands, Face, and Space) and bring with you a suitable hand sanitiser.
