The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead is now in Tier 4. If we can all stick to the rules, our infections rates should go down.
Thank you for your continued support in the fight against COVID-19. This week we hope you can help us share information about tier 4: stay home. Click on the picture for the full summary.
We’re bitterly disappointed to move to tier 4 at Christmas but this new strain of COVID-19 is spreading even faster. It’s a devastating blow to our own wellbeing and local communities and businesses, just when we were all looking forward to some much-needed traditional festive cheer.
Not everyone has symptoms - so assume you have it. Resist the urge to see family and friends. This is a tipping point in the pandemic so our actions now will affect the next few months.
COVID-19 rates are high and rapidly increasing. Don’t drop your guard. COVID-19 fatigue is as dangerous as the virus.
Every single one of us needs to play our part to save lives. We’re all personally responsible. This is just one Christmas, remember. If we work together now and stick to the rules, we can all celebrate it properly next year. But for Christmas 2020, protect your families and loved ones, and stop the NHS being further inundated.
Remain vigilant both outside and indoors. If you develop symptoms, self-isolate at home and get tested. If you need support, we have a variety of resources to help you. See the COVID-19 page on our website for more details
So please, remember:-
If you live in a Tier 4 area, you must follow the rules below. This means that you cannot leave or be outside of the place you are living unless you have a reasonable excuse. You cannot meet other people indoors, including over the Christmas and New Year period, unless you live with them, or they are part of your support bubble. Outdoors, you can only meet one person from another household. These rules will not be relaxed for Christmas for Tier 4 – you cannot form a Christmas bubble in Tier 4.
