New lockdown measures in place

New lockdown measures in place

Following last night’s announcement of a national lockdown, residents in the Tandridge district must now stay at home, as Covid-19 cases continue to rise rapidly across the district and the country.

Under the new lockdown measures, you must not leave, or be outside of your home unless it is absolutely necessary. You may leave home for limited reasons, including to:

  • Shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person.
  • Go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot work from home.
  • Exercise with your household, support bubble or one other person when on your own, this should be limited to once per day and you should not travel outside your local area.
  • Meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one.
  • Seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse).
  • Attend education or childcare, if you’re eligible to attend. Colleges, primary and secondary schools will remain open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. All other children will learn remotely until February half term. Early Years settings remain open. Higher Education will remain online until mid February for all, except future critical worker courses.

If you need to leave home for one of these reasons, you should always stay in your local area, unless you need to travel further for work purposes.

Under the lockdown measures, all non-essential retail is closed, along with hairdressers, golf clubs, indoor gyms and nail bars. Indoor entertainment venues and pubs are not allowed to provide take away alcohol.

Hands. Face. Space.

Approximately 1 in 3 people who have Covid-19 have no symptoms and could be spreading it without realising it.

Remember - Hands. Face. Space.

  • Hands – wash your hands regularly and for at least 20 seconds.
  • Face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
  • Space – stay two metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or one metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings).

Also remember to keep your home ventilated. Letting fresh air into indoor spaces can reduce the risk of infection from Covid-19, so open windows for short, sharp bursts of 10 to 15 minutes regularly throughout the day and leave windows open a small amount when you are at home.
