Covid – a reminder from Bucks Council

Everyone’s hard work means the Government’s ‘roadmap’ is progressing but it’s essential that while so many people have yet to be vaccinated, we all keep going by fully sticking to the new rules. When meeting others socially, this must take place outside, either in a park, another open space or in private gardens. 

Please also remember to keep a distance from anyone you don’t live with. We still can’t mix with other households indoors (unless in a support bubble or for childcare purposes) and it’s critical to stick to this rule as you can catch COVID-19 far more easily inside than outside

We can now meet in groups of up to 6 people including children and babies, or groups of a larger size where it’s just two households getting together.

For more information about what the current rules are please check the government’s website.

Census 2021

From Bucks Council on 1st April:

Census work continues

Reminder letters have been sent and census officers are making follow-up visits to households that haven’t completed their census. If you’re contacted by a parishioner, here is some helpful information to reassure them:

  • The officers are there to help them.
  • Householders should ask to see their ID badge.
  • They will never ask to enter a property and will never ask for personal information or ask for a payment.
  • The officers are following government guidelines with PPE and are all being tested for Covid-19 every few days.

Please do also let people know that if they need help to complete the census they can call our trained library and adult learning staff on 0300 131 6000. There is also a national support line 0800 141 2021 and the Census 2021 website.

Bucks Council Covid update 17th March

“It’s really positive to have all Buckinghamshire children back in their classrooms and we’re continuing to see COVID-19 infection rates fall across Buckinghamshire too. Whilst the lockdown has been a big factor in declining infection rates, we are also seeing a rapid fall in the rates for the over 65 year olds, which is most likely due to the roll out of the vaccine. Nearly 210,000 vaccine doses have now been given in Buckinghamshire, a fantastic achievement in this short space of time. Nevertheless, there is about half the adult population of the county still to be vaccinated. Therefore, we need to remain vigilant as restrictions ease to prevent a ‘third spike’ later in the summer or early winter.”
