What you can do to keep Burnley safe

How Burnley is responding to tackling the new variant and what we can ALL do to help

The Government has announced that surge testing and increased vaccination will be taking place in the borough of Burnley to help tackle new variants of concern. No one wants another lockdown.

We are stepping up our efforts to ensure that both PCR testing and vaccinations across our borough are as accessible as possible to all residents.

Here are simple steps we can ALL take to help stop the spread of COVID 19 including the new variants:

Covid virus variant in Burnley- be alert and take action

Parts of East Lancashire have seen an outbreak of the Covid-19 variant first identified in India, which is known as variant B.1.617.2.  Last week, it was declared a “variant of concern” by Public Health England (PHE) after scientific studies found it may be more easily passed from one person to another. There are only a small number of confirmed cases in Burnley at this time.

Raising the curtain on imaginative Burnley arts project

Part of Burnley town centre is to be given an artistic make-over thanks to an imaginative arts project.

The project, called Raise The Curtain, will take place in lower St James Street which has recently been earmarked a High Street Heritage Action Zone (HAZ).

It aims to tell the story of the area through street-level shutter artworks, combining art and heritage to engage a new audience.

Guidance on community events and occasions issued

The Lancashire Resilience Forum (LRF) has issued guidance on restrictions around upcoming faith and community events for the remainder of 2020 due to coronavirus. The restrictions relate to upcoming events including:
• Prophet Muhammad's birthdate (28/29 October)
• Halloween (31 October)
• Bonfire celebrations (5 - 7 November)
• Remembrance Sunday (8 November)
• Diwali (14 November)
• Hanukkah (10 – 18 December)
• the switching on of Christmas lights.

Plea from Council Leader: Don't mix with other households

Burnley Council leader Mark Townsend has urged local residents not to mix with anyone outside their household or social "bubble" unless absolutely necessary as infection rates in the borough soar dramatically above the national average.
 
"We have to do something now before it's too late," warned Councillor Townsend.
 
Burnley is well into the "red zone" in terms of the numbers of positive cases of Covid-19 and the figures are rising. Cases are increasing in every part of the borough.
