I will start with one clear statement: Waverley remains at Tier 1 (Medium) as of 27/10/20.
However, many of you will now be aware of the recent data (by borough) for Surrey and following this Waverley BC is asking all residents, as it is more important than ever, to follow all the government guidelines in order to protect our community.
A frequent question from residents is what the tier thresholds are. We know that they are based on a basket of different indicators but the government does not tell us what they are (despite how many times we have asked).
❗️For me, the most important question will become: once we cross into the next tier, what’s the game plan to get out of it again?
⛔️ But for now, we are really trying to AVOID going up to that higher level and so the basic guidance remains and we urge residents to follow it.
➡️ Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds
➡️ Wear face covering when required
➡️ Keep a 2-metre distance from those outside your household
➡️ Do not meet up in groups of more than 6
➡️ if you are required to self-isolate, please make sure that you do so for the time required
For anyone interested in the full Surrey data pack (for the period up to Oct 23rd) the link is below and I have copied in some of the Waverley relevant elements here as images
Any questions, please do let us know.
Best Regards,
Cllr Paul Follows
Deputy Leader, Waverley Borough Council
