Police urge public to follow national guidance in response to planned Workington lockdown protest

SHARE:

Cumbria Police are aware of a social media post proposing a gathering in Vulcan Park, Workington, this weekend in connection with the current Covid-19 restrictions. 

A spokesperson said:

"Suitable advice is being given in line with our policing style to keep people safe, in which we engage, explain and encourage people to follow the national guidance, with enforcement used only if these three pillars are unsuccessful. 

"It is important to remember why we are following the restrictions – this sacrifice is to ensure that we protect the NHS and save lives. 

"We would take this opportunity to again emphasise what the public needs to do to keep our communities safe."

· Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home) 

· If you go out, stay two metres (6ft) away from other people at all times 

· Wash your hands as soon as you get home

· Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms. 

A spokesperson from Workington Town Council said:

"The Town Council wants to remind all park users that there is currently a legal restriction on unnecessary gatherings of more than two people who are not from the same household.

"This is to stop the spread of the Coronavirus between people wherever possible, to support the NHS and save lives. Cumbria Police are monitoring any potential breaches of these regulations and will take action where necessary against individuals who attempt to flout them for whatever purpose, if it is not essential."
