Covid-19 National Lockdown Regulations:
As you will be aware, the Government have now imposed a National Lockdown as a way of tackling the rapidly increasing rates of infection of the Covid-19 virus.
We are all instructed to stay at home – this is the single most important action we can take to protect the National Health Service and to save lives. We must not leave, or be outside of our houses, except where necessary for a small number of reasons:
To shop for basic necessities;
For work, if it cannot be done from home;
To exercise, once per day, in the local area;
To meet with a Support Bubble or Childcare Bubble where necessary;
For medical reasons;
To attend education or childcare, for those eligible.
Meanwhile, here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 31st December to 7th January:
