Mansfield District Council are working closely with Nottinghamshire County Council and Public Health England to share key messages around COVID-19.
We want to keep the public informed of the latest guidance that we all need to follow to help slow the spread within our local community.
This is a priority at this time when the number of cases is increasing in Mansfield and across Nottinghamshire, in line with what is happening elsewhere across the country.
Our local ‘Hands, Face, Space – Keep Mansfield safe’ campaign reflects the national guidance.
I have attached our latest graphic so you can use this to create content on your own channels using the key messages below. This will help amplify the messages to as wide an audience as possible.
- wash hands regularly for at least 20 seconds
- wear face coverings in enclosed spaces where you can’t keep your distance
- observe social distancing of 2metres (or 1metre with additional precautions where 2m is not possible) – this includes at home if you are mixing with others
- stick to the ‘rule of 6’ for gatherings indoors or outdoors in any setting
Other key guidelines:
- follow: guidelines about car sharing
- self-isolate and quickly getting a free test if you have symptoms: www.nhs.uk/coronavirus or phone 119
The Rule of 6
New laws prohibiting social gatherings of more than six people came into effect on Monday 14 September. The new “rule of six” means that – apart from a set of limited exemptions including work and education – any social gatherings of more than six people is against the law. Police will be able to disperse any such gatherings and fine individuals involved £100, doubling up to a maximum of £3,200.
The rule applies across England and replaces the previous ban on participating in gatherings of more than 30 and guidance on allowing two households to meet indoors. Now the only rule that people need to remember is to not participate in social gatherings of more than six people in any setting, indoors or outdoors. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/rule-of-six-comes-into-effect-to-tackle-coronavirus
