Families urged to keep following the rules and stay safe this half term


Wiltshire Council is urging parents, children and young people to continue to follow social distancing guidance during the half term holidays.

Kate Blackburn, Director of Public Health for Wiltshire, said: “The rate of COVID-19 cases reported in Wiltshire has fallen over the last seven days and this is largely due to the fact that local people have played their part and followed the lockdown rules.

“Next week is the school half term holiday and I am appealing to parents, children and young people to continue to follow social distancing guidance. I know this will be hard and that many children are missing their friends, but please do not be tempted to break the rules; this will help to contain the virus and so make it possible for children to go back to school and meet up with friends again in the future.
