New Year Greetings

December 31, 2020 10:00 AM

With record numbers being treated for Coronavirus across the Country, residents are asked to play their part this New Year's Eve by staying home and enjoying a safe and small New Year.

Following central government's decision to place Wiltshire into Tier 3 before New Year, as cases rise, it is more important than ever that residents do whatever they can to help stop the spread of the virus.

By reducing contact with others, keeping rooms well ventilated, wearing a face covering where required, keeping a safe social distance and washing your hands regularly, you will help to reduce the spread.

SW Wiltshire Lib Dem spokesperson Ellen Nicholson said, "2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, but cases of Cornoavirus are continuing to rise in the county and remain a cause for concern. We must all do what we can to protect our friends and family, protect our local communities and protect our NHS from being overwhelmed. I urge everyone to keep to the rules and to have a safe and small New Year as we look forward to a better 2021"

Anyone with symptoms must immediately self-isolate for seven days and should only leave the house to access a test.

Regional and local test sites will operate on slightly reduced hours on some public holidays as well as on New Year's Eve but will be open as normal on other days.

To book a site test or a home test go to www.gov.uk/coronavirus or if you don't have internet access contact the telephone call centre on 119 between 7am and 11pm.
