Although only 3 requests for assistance were received today, the highlight of the day was the latest information that was released by the Government.
(Post note: Actually it transpires that 7 requests were received)
I’m sure that you would have seen it, but here are the highlights from NKDC:
There’s a lot to digest from the Prime Minister’s Commons address this afternoon:
From July 4…
✅ 2m social distancing requirement is reduced to 1m+, with extra ‘mitigating measures’ required.
✅ Members of two households can meet inside or out in groups of any size, and stay over.
✅ Pubs, restaurants, hairdressers, museums, galleries, theatres and cinemas can reopen, with limitations and measures in place.
✅ Hotels and campsites can operate, again with limitations and measures in place.
✅ Playgrounds and certain play spaces can re-open, but not pools, indoor gyms, nightclubs, beauty salons and other specified businesses.
✅ Weddings are back on and places of worship open for up to 30 attendees, subject to social distancing.
Check for further detailed guidelines.
Advice for those shielding:
You’ll have heard about changes for those who are clinically extremely vulnerable and advised to shield themselves.
For now the guidance remains the same:
Stay at home and only go outside to exercise or to spend time outdoors with a member of your household, or with one other person from another household if you live alone. However, subject to clinical evidence, the guidance will change on July 6 and again on August 1.
From July 6 :
You can meet in groups of up to six people from outside your household – outdoors with social distancing. If you live alone (or are a lone adult with dependent children under 18), you will be able to form a ‘support bubble’ with another household.
From August 1:
You will no longer need to shield, and the advice will be that you can visit shops and places of worship, but you should continue maintaining rigorous social distancing and hygiene measures. Levels of support are changing and from August 1 the Government’s food boxes will stop. Detail of this and wider support available will be advised from the Lincolnshire Local Resilience Forum.
Take care and Stay Safe
