Social distancing – A guide for towns, parishes and businesses

8 July 2020 Posted by

To support our high streets re-opening, Cornwall Council developed a toolkit to enable local communities to be able to develop measures to support people to be able to socially distance in our towns. At the heart of our approach is that we trust our residents and communities to do the right thing and to follow the Government’s social distancing guidelines.

Further information about how we will support this process, access to the toolkit, FAQs and more i is available here https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/transport-and-streets/roads-highways-and-pavements/social-distancing-a-guide-for-towns-parishes-and-businesses

So far temporary pedestrianisation schemes have been rolled out during the core shopping hours in Falmouth, Truro, St Ives, Helston and Newquay to enable people to be able to socially distance themselves. Many of our more coastal towns such as Looe and Torpoint are also working to develop plans to support social distancing as visitors number are expected to increase over forthcoming weeks.
