Coronavirus (Covid-19)

INFORMATION FROM BUDOCK PARISH COUNCIL

 Working within guidelines from HM Government, we hope you will find the suggestions below helpful at this very difficult time:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly with water and soap, rinse and dry well.
  2. Catch any coughs or sneezes in a tissue, and dispose of the tissue safely.
  3. Be prepared to self-isolate if you experience any symptoms of infection e.g. high temperature, constant coughing and shortness of breath.
  4. If you experience any of these symptoms, do not go to your G.P. surgery. Isolate yourself and ring NHS on 111; they will give you details of what needs to be done.
  5. Plan ahead based on your situation. Having a daily plan of possible activities can be helpful, and should prevent any unforeseen emergencies e.g. running out of prescribed medication or essential items of food.

There is plenty of information on line, but please be aware that the internet can also be a source of “fake news”. Seek tried and trusted sites e.g. N.H.S., GovUK, BBC,  and don’t rely on information passed around on social media.

If you live within Budock parish, and feel you need urgent help, please place an item of red (cardboard, clothing, etc.) in your window or on your front door. Do not let anyone into your home, but speak to a caller through a half-open window.

Please follow government guidance to take only essential journeys, going outside only to walk your dog or take exercise once a day, and always maintaining social distancing of 2 metres.

By restricting our lives now, we can all do our part to protect ourselves, our friends and loved ones and the N.H.S. and hopefully look forward to a brighter future together.

Budock Parish Council will update information on the noticeboard as appropriate. Please check regularly.

Parish Council Update

In view of the Coronavirus pandemic the Government has said that all Parish Council public meetings are to be cancelled for the foreseeable future.

We list below some points of contact/information that may be of some use.

For those wishing to volunteer to assist in these difficult times –

In your travels around the Parish you may see a red item displayed in a house window. This is a sign that the occupant may require some form of assistance. If you approach to offer help please remember the 6 foot rule and if possible speak through a partially open window or door.

The Government advises that there continue to be a number of key resources for information and you can now subscribe direct to the .gov.uk coronavirus bulletins at
https://www.gov.uk/email-signup?link=/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response
The .gov.uk pages publish information, guidance and advice across the government agencies including the NHS and Public Health England.

Cornwall Council has a special page of updates, information and advice specific to the Duchy. In particular it details support available around council tax and benefits, adult and social care, schools and local businesses. The webpages are updated regularly and can be accessed at
https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/health-and-social-care/public-health-cornwall/information-about-coronavirus-covid-19/

We hope that this information will be of use during these trying times.

Coronavirus and your Parish Council.

As you are all aware we are in the grip of a Coronavirus pandemic. Upon guidance from the Government, Budock Parish Council is to suspend all Parish Council meetings until we are advised otherwise.

Should you need to contact the Council then you can still email the Clerk on clerk@budockparish.net with any queries.

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, in the meantime stay home and stay safe.
