COVID-19 Local Alert Level 2 Announcement

COVID-19 Local Alert Level 2 Announcement

What the new restrictions mean and when they will come into effect
From just after midnight on Saturday, 31 October 2020, the new local alert level 2 restrictions for the East Riding will mean:

• You must not meet socially with friends and family indoors in any setting unless you live with them or have formed a support bubble with them. This includes private homes and any other indoor venues such as pubs and restaurants.

• You may continue to see friends and family you do not live with outdoors, including in a garden or other outdoor space. When you do so, you must not meet in a group of more than six people.

• Visiting indoor hospitality/leisure/retail settings is restricted to one household i.e. two households must not meet in these settings (unless those two households are in a support bubble).

• In agreement with the Government, the council is looking at ways to facilitate visits in care homes. However, the absolute priority is that we need to continue keeping COVID-19 out of care settings.

• You may continue to travel to venues or amenities which are open, for work, voluntary, charitable or youth services, or to access education, within a high alert level area, but you should and aim to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible. If you need to travel we encourage you to walk or cycle where possible, or to plan ahead and avoid busy times and routes on public transport. This will allow you to practice social distancing while you travel.

• You can still go on holiday outside of your area, but you should only do this with people you live with, or have formed a support bubble with (dependent on any local restrictions in the area you are visiting).

• People can play a team sport only where this is formally organised by a sports club or similar organisation, and sports-governing body guidance has been issued.

• People should not attend amateur or professional sporting events as spectators.

• Wedding receptions and celebrations can continue for up to 15 people in the form of a sit-down meal and in a COVID-19-secure setting, not in a private dwelling.

• Up to 30 people can attend a funeral, and 15 for a wake in a COVID-19-secure setting, not in a private dwelling.

How and when to request a COVID-19 test
If you do have any symptoms of COVID-19 – a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – you can request a test at www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.

COVID-19 Meetings Update

During the current COVID-19 pandemic Newport Parish Council will conduct meetings online via the Zoom meeting platform.

Meeting ID’s and passwords will be given on this website and also displayed in any agenda.

Once you join the meeting you will be placed in the ‘waiting room’ and then given access to the meeting from the meeting administrator. This is in line with Zoom’s best practice and will become a requirement for using the Zoom platform.
Please ensure that you have a identifying user name, should you need to be addressed during the open forum.

As we have previously communicated, starting September 27th, 2020, we will be requiring that all meetings have a Passcode or Waiting Room enabled. We have designed these security measures to give you control over your meeting security options while keeping the join experience as frictionless as possible.

Details on how to use Zoom on a number of different devices can be found directly on Zooms website.
