Covid rules change on Monday
The rules about what we can and can’t do change again on Monday, 12 April.
Monday’s changes will be the biggest lifting of restrictions so far. And while our freedoms are set to increase, it’s vital we keep doing the things that have been keeping Cornwall safe.
From Monday, 12 April, the rules allow for:
- six people or two households meeting outdoors only, unless you are in a support bubble, in which case you can meet indoors.
- Reopening of non-essential shops.
- Reopening of personal care premises.
- Restart of indoor gyms sessions for individuals or households but not mixed groups.
- Reopening outdoor attractions such as zoos, theme parks or drive-in cinemas.
- Hospitality venues to provide food and drink outdoors.
- A household to stay away from home overnight in self-contained accommodation or a hotel.
- Continue to wear a face covering in enclosed public places like shops unless you are medically exempt.
- Wash your hands often for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser.
- Keep 2 metres apart from anyone you don’t live with even when you are socialising.
- Take up the vaccine when offered.
- Get a test and self-isolate if you have symptoms.
High streets gearing up to open safely
On Monday, our high streets will be ready to reopen safely and welcome you back.
The Council has been working closely with town and parish councils and local businesses to put lots of Covid-safe measures in place to help reassure you when you are out and about.
We will still need to remember to do our bit, too, to keep each other safe. To help us do this, measures include prominent signage with social distancing and face covering reminders, one-way traffic flow and designated pedestrian-only areas, and hand sanitiser stations.
This is being supported by the Reopening High Streets Safely Fund which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
Mental health first aid – new dates
Mental ill health can strike anyone at any time and can affect people from all walks of life.
Mental Health First Aid is a training course that teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
It won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it’ll teach you how to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
Due to high demand our Healthy Cornwall team have added additional dates for several of their MHFA courses.
Have you considered applying for an apprenticeship? Or do you know someone you think would be a good candidate?
An apprenticeship is simply a job with training. The benefits include:
- Earning as you learn – we pay a competitive salary.
- Hands-on experience.
- Recognised qualification/s.
- Career advice and guidance.
Take a look at the benefits of an apprenticeship here and keep checking back, as we’ll be adding new vacancies over the next few months.
