Cornwall Council urges caution as the county reopens

From Cornwall Council:

Saturday 4th July is the day central government has said that hotels, holiday lets, cafés and restaurants can reopen and visitors return to Cornwall.

We understand, reopening tomorrow brings economic relief for many businesses. For some residents, Cornwall’s release from lockdown brings the fear of a second wave that could put loved ones at risk and see our health services overwhelmed.

As a Council, we will keep urging caution. We will keep reminding residents and visitors that the actions of every single one of us can make the difference between a safe reopening and a second wave  that sends us all back into lock down.

We’ve been working hard with businesses and partner organisations including the NHS and Visit Cornwall to make sure we open in the safest possible way. Help us to keep Cornwall safe by doing your bit too, as you have done throughout the pandemic.

Cornwall Council’s public protection officers will patrol town centres from this weekend to support hospitality businesses to reopen safely. We’ll be on hand to offer advice to pubs, restaurants, bars, and takeaways as they welcome customers.


And we’ll be explaining, encouraging and supporting businesses to understand what they are need to do in order to reopen in a way that protects Cornwall from Coronavirus.


We will only take enforcement actions against businesses that are clearly creating COVID-19 infection risks.

🛍️ Cornwall’s shops, cafés and restaurants reopen tomorrow and they need our support.

✅ To keep us all safe, Cornwall’s towns and businesses will be following Covid-19 secure guidelines.

👍 For a safe and enjoyable stay, or visit to your local high street, please stick to the guidance and keep your distance from others.
