Please can we ask everyone who uses our  Country Park and play parks to follow current (as of 23 March 2020) Government guidance on social distancing.

If residents and their household are not self-isolating, they are welcome to use the Country Park and play parks – as long as they and their children continue to follow Government advice and practice social distancing. According to the World Health Organisation, individuals can ensure social distancing by maintaining “at least 2 metres (6 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is not from your household”.

If anyone in a household exhibits symptoms of coronavirus, including a high temperature or a continuous cough, then the Government’s advice is that everyone in the household must self-isolate. This means that everyone in the home will need to stay at home for 14 days, from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms. If families are isolating then that means they and others who they live with should not leave the house at all, or even open the door to delivery drivers and therefore children should not be leaving the house either alone or accompanied to go to the Country park or play parks.
