Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have been designated an ‘Enhanced Response Area’ (ERA) to help tackle the current rise in Covid-19 cases.

It means that additional resources will be made available by the government to help reinforce Cornwall Council’s efforts to stop the spread of the virus and keep residents safe.

Message from Public Health for Cornwall & Isles of Scilly

Rachel Wigglesworth, Director of Public Health for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, said: “It is absolutely crucial that residents and visitors alike continue to take precautions and remain Covid-aware.

“We would also strongly advise people to do the things we already know help stop the spread of the virus. That means wearing a face covering in crowded areas, indoors or on public transport, keeping your distance from other people where possible, and washing or sanitising your hands regularly.”
