Buckinghamshire residents urged to stay at home even in good weather during the Coronavirus emergency

| April 3, 2020

Residents in Buckinghamshire have been urged to comply with the advice of the Government and stay at home this weekend.

As the nation approaches the peak of the Covid-19 epidemic residents in Buckinghamshire are being urged to stay at home this weekend and in the coming weeks until the UK wide ‘lock down’ is lifted by the Government.

Businesses have also been asked to continue complying with Government requirements to stay closed.

Buckinghamshire Council’s Executive Portfolio Holder for Health and Culture, Gareth Williams, said that with lighter evenings and warmer weather forecast, especially this weekend, there was a temptation to head for the countryside.

Gareth said: ‘My advice is the same as the Government’s. Please let’s stay in our homes so we don’t increase the risk to ourselves and others, including our loved ones.

There is now high level of coronavirus transmission in the community and it is really important to follow this guidance, for everyone’s sake.

It’s really good that shops and businesses are complying with closure orders and we’ve seen an upsurge of goodwill by residents who are following social distancing guidance.

But if we relax things now, we run the risk of substantially increasing the rate of infection and overwhelming our NHS, who are doing a fantastic job.

Let’s remain resolute: stay at home and stay closed to protect ourselves and others, protect the NHS, and save lives.
