With the national lockdown still in place, it’s really important that you continue to stay at home this weekend. Coronavirus is still a threat to everyone – anyone can get it and anyone can spread it.
- Our car parks, play areas and parks remain closed. We will of course review this in light of any government announcements on Sunday, but please do not expect the immediate reopening of these facilities following any lifting of restrictions.
- We know that Dorset is popular with visitors but we must re-open our popular locations in a way that means social distancing measures can continue, people’s safety is prioritised and the fight against COVID-19 continues.
We’re asking Dorset residents to take their daily exercise from home. Use local roads, paths and open spaces and please don’t travel to your favourite parks, beaches or beauty spots. The majority of car parks will be closed and Dorset Police will be checking that people are travelling for essential reasons only.
We’re also asking people who live outside of Dorset not to visit the county until a later date when restrictions are lifted.
Thank you for staying at home so far – it really has made a huge difference. All of your favourite places in Dorset will still be here when restrictions are eased, so please keep it up.
Stay at home this weekend!
