Stay at home

Published: 17/04/2020

Following a fantastic response from residents over the Easter period to heed Government advice and stay at home, Flintshire County Council is again urging everyone to avoid non-essential travel and ‘stay at home’. 

By following this advice we can ‘help protect the NHS and save lives’. 

Government advice says you can leave home only once-a-day for exercise. That could mean a bicycle ride, walking the dog, or going for a walk or run. Public open spaces and footpaths should be used responsibly and social distancing should be observed at all times and remember to ‘stay local’ when exercising. 

Rights of Way allow public access to their local countryside. Social distancing rules should be closely observed and people should be considerate of the landowners over whose land paths pass and:

•         Go alone or with members of your household;

•         Be aware that gates, stiles and other outdoor structures are touched regularly so follow hygiene guidance;

•         Do not try new or risky activities - ‘stay safe’ 

•         Follow the Countryside Code - consider farmers and others who are working to keep our shop shelves stocked.
