With infection rates at 319.1, Bracknell Forest Council is urging local businesses to help with the fight against COVID-19.
Tessa Lindfield, Strategic Director of Public Health, Berkshire East has today asked people to think about what they’re doing to follow the rules and stop COVID-19 spreading.
Bracknell Forest residents must stay at home and stick to new tier 4 restrictions from Sunday 20 December.
They must not form Christmas bubbles.
Following the Government announcement this afternoon, Bracknell Forest will move into tier 4 from tomorrow, Sunday 20 December.
To help keep shoppers safe in the run up to Christmas, the council had a number of people out and about in Crowthorne last week to offer COVID-19 support and advice.
The Hall of Remembrance at Easthampstead Park Cemetery and Crematorium remains closed to visitors until further notice.
Due to a significant rise in the number of positive COVID-19 cases within the borough, Bracknell Forest has been placed in tier 3 ‘very high’ risk.
Tier 3 restrictions will come into force on Saturday 19 December.
Cllr Paul Bettison, OBE, Leader of Bracknell Forest Council, gives a weekly update.
He thanks school across the borough for keeping pupils as safe as possible, and reminds us of the new food waste service launching next year.
We have launched the COVID Winter Grant Scheme.
The grant can help towards:
- gas bills
- electricity bills
The winning photos have been chosen in this year’s Bracknell Forest photo competition.
This year, we asked local amateur photographers to share how they’re staying safe and inspired.
