The Council’s team of Covid-19 advisors is offering advice about social distancing throughout the borough.

Over the coming weeks and the bank holidays Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council’s team of Covid-19 advisors will be on hand in the borough offering advice about social distancing.

They will be: Giving advice to members of the public and local businesses on current restrictions.

Offering advice and guidance to businesses on the current guidance and highlight any issues of non-compliance.

This year, the Easter weekend starts with Good Friday on 2nd April, and the Early May bank holiday takes place on Monday, May 3, followed by the spring bank holiday on Monday, May 31.

Under the Government’s lockdown roadmap, from 29 March, when most schools start to break up for the Easter holidays, outdoor gatherings (including in private gardens) of either six people (the rule of six or two households will also be allowed, making it easier for friends and families to meet outside.

Outdoor sports facilities such as tennis and basketball courts will also be allowed to reopen, and people will be able to take part in formally organised outdoor sports.

The ‘stay at home’ rule will also end on 29 March but many restrictions will remain in place. People should continue to work from home where they can and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible, avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes.

Commencing on 27th March for weekends and Bank Holidays in April we will also be having a presence of Covid-19 advisors in our Destination Parks (Miners’ Welfare and Riversley) and a team roaming in other Council community parks to support visitors and ensure our parks are used with restrictions in place.

Ian Lloyd, Portfolio for Arts and Leisure said:

“The Covid advisors will be there on hand to advise visitors of the current restrictions and to help keep our parks safe for all to use and enjoy over coming weekends.''

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council leader Cllr Julie Jackson said:

“Our Covid-19 advisors are doing a valuable job in our borough and are available to offer advice to members of the public and the business community about the current rules and restrictions.

“We would also like to remind people to stick to the rules regarding Covid-19, especially over the coming bank holidays and as the restrictions are hopefully gradually lifted. 

“We have to keep putting into practice the advice we have all been given, as it is based on the best knowledge of this virus.’’
