ADVICE FOR EVERYONE-CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home

Important

These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.


Services

Stamford Town Council was formerly a Borough Council, prior to the local government reorganisation in 1974. Although called a Town Council, its responsibilities and powers are the same as any Parish Council, with certain civic duties that it is required to undertake within its parish boundary. Responsibilities include the management of the cemetery, the town’s allotments, the Recreation Ground and the town Meadows. In addition, the councillors are appointed as trustees of the Harry Skells Estate Trust and administer the funds available from the Trust.
