Coronavirus update. 20th September 2020
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 20th September 2020.
With the number of positive Covid-19 tests increasing throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland governments have updated their regulations. These yet again differ greatly between countries and we would like to explain what this means to owners and visitors on our Parks.
WALES- Social distancing guidelines
Indoors: Up to six aged 11+ from and extended household.
Outdoors- Up to 30 people
At what distance: 2m apart age 11+ only. (less in some premises).
Wearing face masks:
Due to the rising incidence rate of cases in Wales as from 14th September it has now become a legal requirement.
Face coverings will be required in all indoor public places, for both customers and staff working in those indoor public areas. This includes a very wide range of locations, such as shops and shopping centres, places of worship, hairdressers and salons, cinemas and museums, gyms and leisure centres, and anywhere that is open to members of the public.
The only indoor public areas where face coverings will not be required are where you are inside a place to eat or drink, for example, cafés, restaurants and pubs. But where food and drink is only being served for consumption in part of the premises – for example, a café which also offers take away services – you will need to wear a face covering in the parts of the premises where people are not eating or drinking.
Visiting the Parks if you live in an area with a local lockdown.
Government guidelines state the following:-
If you are from any of the areas below:
Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull
Blackburn with Darwen, Oldham, Pendle, Bolton, Leicester
North (Greater Manchester, East Lancashire, Preston, and West Yorkshire)
North East (Northumberland, North Tyneside, Newcastle-upon-Tyne Gateshead, South Tyneside, Sunderland and County Durham
The lockdowns in England do not impact on the ability of a household to go on holiday, so long as they don’t mix with other households: ‘You can still go on holiday outside of the affected areas, but you should only do this with people you live with (or have formed a support bubble with).’
Bearing in mind the above we will not be preventing anyone from any of these areas from coming and staying on our Parks. However, we do insist that you keep to social distancing guidelines and do not socialise with other persons on the Parks.
It is in Caerphilly and Rhondda Cynon Taff in Wales where the local lockdown means people are not allowed to enter or leave the area without reasonable excuse, which does not include going on holiday. If they are already away, the Welsh Government does not require residents of these areas to curtail their holidays. However people who left the area ‘’shortly before restrictions were put in place should be aware they pose a higher risk of transmitting the virus, and so ideally they should return home as soon as possible’.
As we do not have any owners on our Parks from these areas so this will not apply to us unless a caravan owner rents their caravan out to someone who is from either of these areas. If this is the case you must inform us immediately.
Please be respectful and look after yourselves and others and come and speak to one of the Park Owners if you have any questions.
