The government has given permission for people with the most serious illnesses who live in England, Wales and Cornwall to leave their home for the first time since March.

When life under lockdown began, about 2.5 million people received a letter from the government advising them to stay at home because the virus was extremely dangerous to people with serious illnesses, such as cancer or a disease of the lungs.

Now, these people can go outside with members of their household or, if they live on their own, they are allowed to meet with someone from another household provided they don’t get too close to each other.

In Wales, people who are ‘shielded’ can exercise outdoors as often as they like but in Scotland and Northern Ireland they are not yet permitted to do so.

Some children in primary schools have gone back to their classes this week and Cornwall Council has initiated a new campaign, ‘Don’t Burst My Bubble’, to explain to young children the meaning of ‘social distancing’.

The aim of the campaign is to help teachers explain the concept of the ‘personal bubble’ and how they should behave now that they are back at school.

Councillor Sally Hawkin said that it was necessary to explain to children that the new rules were not their fault but that they were necessary to keep everyone safe.

Cornwall Council has reported that it needs more funding from the government to make up for the money it has spent in its fight against the coronavirus.

According to the report, the council had received a grant of £34 million but it still needed £28 million more.

The council added that the government’s plans were constantly changing and that it was impossible to know their exact future liabilities. However, it was likely that it would need £10 million more in order to carry out the work which it had to undertake against the virus.

Groups of volunteers are collecting money so that they can organise patrols to keep watch over beaches where there are currently no lifeguards.

Recently, a few people have been saved by volunteers and surfers on beaches around the Cornish coast.

RNLI patrols were cancelled in March because of the Covid-19 emergency but the institute hope that lifeguards may return to nearly seventy beaches over the summer.

Usually, professional lifeguards are to be found on 240 beaches but, at the moment, they have returned to only eight.

However, this week, a new rescue service was launched on Newquay’s beaches by a group of volunteers, Newquay Surf Life Saving Club. It is organised by Nicholas Pendreich who is trying to collect funding for the club through Crowdfunder for training, insurance, whistles and equipment to protect the volunteers from the virus.

Mr Pendreich said that the volunteers would keep watch over the beach, offer advice on sea conditions and safe behaviour, and call the coastguard if they saw any dangerous incidents.

In future, he hopes to buy a vehicle suitable for use on beaches and dunes and perhaps a small lifeboat as well.

Volunteers in St Ives and Padstow hope to organise similar groups soon and the RNLI reported that it was already supporting a surf club in Bude.
