Covid-19 Review


Boris Johnson announced a few days ago that the lockdown will ease a little from Monday 1st June and we will be able to meet in an open space as a group of up to 6 people (not from same household). Social distancing must still be priority and we must still keep 2 metres away


Face coverings are now recommended in all enclosed areas to help protect you and others. They don’t have to be medical masks but just something to lessen any chance of catching or passing on germs.


The main message is still to keep washing your hands. It’s recommended you don’t wear gloves and use anti-bacterial wipes, sanitizers or better still wash hands.


You are now allowed out of your homes to do shopping but also to exercise as much as you want now in an open space and currently with one other person from another household.

Excel in London (known as the NHS Nightingale hospital) currently hasn’t been used yet and has been closed and will stay dormant until it is needed


From Monday 1st June schools will be reopening for Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year Six ages only. They will prioritise the key workers children & the vulnerable first. You will not be fined for not sending your child if you chose not to. High schools are due to open to Year Ten and Year Twelve two weeks later. For everyone else parents are home schooling and teachers are doing remote learning using the internet. BBC bitesize also has been created to help teach children who don’t have work or want more help etc.


It was announced some non-essential shops will open from 15th June but details are unclear. Lots of take-aways are now open and some restaurants are offering takeaway services.


The elderly and vulnerable are still being advised to stay home and stay safe for now.

Last Thursday evening was the last stand clap for the NHS staff, all standing united on our doorsteps, balconies and open windows applauding and cheering for all our amazingly brave NHS staff who so courageously and selflessly battled on to try and save as many lives as possible.
