Cheshire East is placed in COVID alert level ‘High’

The Prime Minister has announced details of new local COVID alert levels which give local authorities, residents and workers information about what to do and how to manage the outbreak in their area.
The new three tier alert system sets out localised restrictions based on the level of infections in certain areas. The local COVID alert levels are set at either Medium, High or Very high.

Cheshire East has been listed as local COVID alert level High (also known as Tier 2) along with Cheshire West and Chester, Warrington and a number of other local authority areas.

This means that:

  • You must not socialise with anybody outside of your household or support bubble in any indoor setting, whether at home or in a public place
  • You must not socialise in a group of more than 6 outside, including in a garden or other spaces like beaches or parks (other than where specific exemptions apply in law)

You can view the full list of additional restrictions that fall under the high alert level on the government website here.

We are working through the detailed implications of the restrictions and how they affect our services and our workplaces and will continue to keep you updated. In the meantime, please continue to work as you are, at home where possible.

The restrictions wcame into force from 00.01 on Wednesday 14 October. The infographic here demonstrates what the high alert level means as a quick reference guide and there is further in-depth guidance on what high alert restrictions will be in place from Wednesday in our area on the website here.

This poem was composed by Jenny Howarth.

Covid - 19

The R rate, it’s getting too high,
Meaning more innocent people will die,
Protests, large groups and so much more,
Please think what your doing, I’m shocked to the core,
It’s a simple request, social distance, keep safe,
It shouldn’t have to be rammed in your face,
It’s not forever, this pandemic will be in our past,
But lets put it there quicker, it’s spreading too fast,
If you look at yourself and think you’ll be fine,
Think of the vulnerable suffering down the line,
It doesn’t take much for this virus to spread,
Family and friends catching it I genuinely dread,
My friends and colleagues, NHS staff,
Are risking their lives, this isn’t a laugh,
It’s much more serious than some people think,
Pushing the country to the absolute brink,
But we can stop this, we can win,
Just listen to the advice and please STAY IN.
It could save your life, your families and friends,
So let’s stop this now and fight for the end.

The poem has also been featured in an article on Nantwich News.
