Thank you for your continuing support – Andy
Finally, here are a couple of extracts from the latest NKDC Newsletter:
Your efforts have helped protect our communities against coronavirus since the beginning of the pandemic. Thank you.
It’s important to let you know that we have seen a small rise in cases in North Kesteven recently.
Cumulatively, since the start of the pandemic to today, we’re among 25 local authority areas across the country to have had the lowest total numbers of cases.
Figures show however there’s been an increase in cases in the District to a total of 27 in the week ending 6 September, and we must protect each other by lowering this number.
We must continue to protect each other by lowering this number.
Meeting family and friends
It has been difficult for people to be cut off from their family and friends in recent months.
At present, the guidance says two households of any size are allowed to meet indoors or outdoors, or up to six people from different households outdoors.
However the rules are changing from Monday 14 September to no more than six people as a maximum, indoors or outdoors. Social gatherings of more than six will become illegal.
It means two households will not be able to meet if their number would exceed six in total. It will apply across all of England and in both private and public spaces.
There will be some exemptions. A household or support bubble which is already bigger than six people can socialise but not with anyone else at the same time.
There will be exceptions too where gatherings are for work or education purposes, or for Covid Secure weddings, funerals and organised Covid safe team sports.
And Covid Secure venues, such as places of worship, restaurants and hospitality venues, can still host larger numbers in total but these groups of up to six must not mix.
In light of the rise in cases, we should all also:
limit interaction with anyone outside a group we are with, even if you see other people you know.
limit the number of people you see socially, especially over short periods of time. The more interactions, the more chances we give the virus to spread.
