This briefing is to keep you updated on the evolving situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) and the actions being taken in the district.It is currently issued once a month.
Who does it affect?
The Government’s new ‘Eat out to Help out’ scheme has started this month, to support restaurants, cafes, hotels and pubs. Please see further details below.
The Government paused shielding from 1 August, but this could change if the transmission of COVID-19 in the community starts to rise significantly. You can find more information herehttps://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19
On Saturday 1 August, the government had hoped to reopen a number of higher risk settings that had remained closed in England. The Prime Minister confirmed that these changes are being postponed for at least a fortnight.
This means that, until 15 August at the earliest:
The government will also extend the requirement to wear a face covering to other indoor settings where the public are likely to come into contact with people you do not normally meet, such as museums, galleries, cinemas and places of worship.
The government now recommends face coverings are worn in these settings, and this will become enforceable in law from 8 August.
People are being urged to stay alert, follow social distancing advice, wear a face covering in enclosed spaces and wash their hands regularly. More information can be found atwww.gov.uk/coronavirus
All of our services are currently running as normal, but you can visit:https://www.chichester.gov.uk/councilservicestatus for all the latest information.
