Government Restrictions Eased from Wednesday 02/12/2020

Our review of the Government’s new restrictions confirms that
(subject to any further Government updates)

We have analysed these in detail on https://www.gov.uk/guidance/local-restriction-tiers-what-you-need-to-know
and here is our summary for your information as our
Covid-Secure Safe Seven Steps

  1. The Government has categorised Whittlesey as Tier 2, so Gildenburgh now falls in that Tier!
  2. Outdoor physical activity can continue, so you can travel to Gildenburgh for swimming, but you should aim to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible.
  3. You must not meet socially with anybody you do not live with, or who is not in your support bubble, and you must not socialise in a group of more than 6. This is called the ‘rule of 6’.
  4. Our cafeteria is permitted to continue takeaway sales, so you can get hot & cold drinks, chocbars, crisps & simple snacks like sausage sandwiches & hot soup to eat outdoors on site while maintaining social distancing, or in your car on the way home
  5. Ensure you stay 1 metre apart from anyone not in your household or support bubble, when you are outdoors with unlimited ventilation, although 2 metres is still preferable where possible.
  6. Non-essential retail can remain open, but if you need to enter the shop you must wear a mask.
  7. You must not travel if you are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, are self-isolating as a result of coronavirus symptoms, are sharing a household or support bubble with somebody with symptoms, or have been told to self-isolate after being contacted by NHS Test and Trace.

Thanks for your support to date, and we hope to see you again soon.

Safe Swimming Always & look after yourselves.
