UPDATE- restriction on mixing at residential properties

Release date: 
Tuesday, 4 August, 2020
Please see the latest guidance on the new restructions affecting many parts of the north west including Burnley and Padiham. (Updated 6th August).

In summary:

in order to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, you should not:

  1. meet people you do not live with inside a private home or garden, except where you have formed a support bubble (or for other limited exemptions to be specified in law).
  2. visit someone else’s home or garden even if they live outside of the affected areas.
  3. socialise with people you do not live with in other indoor public venues – such as pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops, places of worship, community centres, leisure and entertainment venues, or visitor attractions. You may attend these venues with people you live with (or are in a support bubble with), but should avoid interaction with others. If you run such a business, you should take steps to ensure people do not interact with people they do not live with, in line with COVID-19 Secure guidance.

The government will pass new laws to enforce the changes to meeting people in private homes and gardens. The police will be able to take action against those that break these rules, including asking people to disperse and issuing fixed penalty notices (starting at £100 – halving to £50 if paid in the first 14 days – and doubling for subsequent offences).

These measures will be concerning for people across Burnley and Padiham, but these steps are essential to avoid a second-spike locally.
It also shows why it is so important we all continue to do our bit by staying alert to the threat the virus poses.
  • Wash your hands more frequently.
  • Wear a face covering in shops and on public transport.
  • Maintain social distancing at all times.
  • If you have symptoms, get tested.
  • Engage with NHS Test & Trace if contacted.
