They must also be worn when buying takeaway food and drink, although they can be removed in a seating area. Those who break the rules could face a fine of up to #100.
Volunteer groups have been set-up throughout the County and a Directory listing all the names of volunteers, by region is available.

During the current coronavirus pandemic, the parish council and volunteer groups may use personal data of vulnerable and at risk individuals which has been supplied by them, or by their relatives, to ensure that they are fully supported during the current crisis. The information held will be used for this purpose alone, and will be deleted once the pandemic is at an end.

Are offering all vulnerable and patients over the age 70 to have their prescriptions sent directly to Baydon Post Office for collection.
You must inform the surgery (dispensary) at the time of ordering your prescriptions. This can be done on line by filling in on the second page, your request to deliver to Baydon PO.
For those of you filling in the prescription request form by hand, this can be left at Baydon PO and it will be delivered to the Surgery. Please indicate on this form that you wish your medications to be delivered back to Baydon PO.
Please send in all requests for medication at least seven to ten days in advance.
Medications will be returned to Baydon PO for collection on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
By using this service we can cut down on the number of persons coming into contact with one another at the Surgery and dispensary.
Your understanding and help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

The Community Pack document issued by Wiltshire Council
has been updated, to access
please click on the picture.
The majority of groups being set-up by volunteers are to ensure their fellow residents, vulnerable neighbours and family have all the support they need following the government's latest advice regarding social distancing and self-isolation.
We created the Community Pack to support you and your community during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
Within it you'll find a list of key contacts, resources and information in one place, which we hope you can share with your community to support each other as much as possible during this time.

In this current Coronavirus lockdown,
we are seeking emergency help from our local communities.
We own two homes in the area that are occupied by adults with additional care and support needs. We have dedicated Support Teams and Nurses that assist the adults in their homes with their daily needs.
We are a registered charity and are finding it difficult to recruit for Staff in the service in these trying times. As a result, we are looking for temporary and permanent help (with options of fortnightly pay available) to help serve the community, and help those sadly out of work.
Please contact the
White Horse Care Trust directly if you can help.
