Christmas/New Year in Cornwall

From Cornwall Council:

Although Cornwall has remained one of three “tier one” areas in England, Covid cases have started to rise again in the last week. Please don’t let your guard down over the festive period.

Let’s keep on looking after ourselves and others:

  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Wear a face covering in enclosed spaces
  • Keep your distance from others


Just because you can form Christmas bubbles this year doesn’t mean you should.
Public Health Practitioner Whitney Curry is asking everyone to think carefully about who they mix with over the festive period. You can watch her video here.

Stick to the rules to keep yourself and others safe this Christmas and into the New Year.

There will be specific rules for festive get-togethers from national government between 23 and 27 December:

  • You can form an exclusive ‘Christmas bubble’ composed of people from no more than three households
  • You can only be in one Christmas bubble and you cannot change your Christmas bubble
  • You can travel between tiers and UK nations for the purposes of meeting your Christmas bubble
  • You can only meet your Christmas bubble in private homes or in your garden, places of worship, or public outdoor spaces


If you form a Christmas bubble, you should try to avoid meeting socially with friends and family that you do not live with in your home or garden unless they are part of your Christmas bubble

However, residents are being urged to think carefully about their festive plans, as the more people we see, the more likely the virus will spread.

New Year’s Eve will look and feel very different in Cornwall this year with no official events planned in any towns.

This year we are asking residents not to gather in the usual places and celebrate at home wherever they can.

If you are a resident, or visiting Cornwall help us to protect each other and our NHS by following the rules and enjoy the festive season safely.
