The county's public health chief is asking residents to "look at their own family situations and think about the level of risk" as the UK's lockdown rules will relax for five days over the Christmas period later this month. People in Gloucestershire are urged to think about whether it is "worth seeing granny" this Christmas amid coronavirus fears, the county's public health chief has said. Sarah Scott is asking residents to "look at their own family situations and think about the level of risk" as the UK's lockdown rules will relax for five days over the Christmas period later this month.
From December 23 and 27, people across the UK will be able to form "bubbles" of three households and can mix indoors and stay overnight. There will be no limit to the of people in a household ing a bubble, according to the Government's plans.
Ms Scott, Gloucestershire's director of public health, said the second national English lockdown brought cases down, with positive recorded coronavirus cases between November 21 and 27 compared to in the seven-day period. She added: "This is one Christmas out of a whole lifetime of Christmases.
That is my urge to the people of Gloucestershire. Sarah Scott said: "Obviously there is the opportunity to mix in the Christmas period. I do not think there is a director of public health in the country that is not nervous about this.
I think we have made great progress in the reduction of cases but we still had cases in that week. We know that whatever we see in the community we see as a pattern going from hospitals, about a week to 10 days later. Be really mindful of that. Ms Scott added: "Is it worth having a big family get together for five days over Christmas when actually social distancing is going to be really, really difficult. That is really tragic, they are all members of families, friends, they live in communities, they had jobs.
