Corona Update


COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update 7th May 2020

Chair of Cumbria's Strategic Co-ordinating Group, Assistant Chief Constable Andrew Slattery

Cumbria has one of the highest infection rates nationally and there are still people suffering and dying in out hospitals and care homes. This is why it is so important that we all continue to follow Government guidance. Focussing on what might result in a fine misses the point of why we have been asked to stay at home; to prevent the virus spreading and save people's lives - including your own or those of your loved ones.

The virus does not spread itself, it is only spread by people so please don't travel unless it is really necessary, please don't mix or socialise with people outside your household and please make sure that we drive this virus right down to reduce the risk of infection.

Please stay at home this weekend. Do not put yourself or your family in harm's way.

Thank You  

VE Day

VE Day celebrations

The nation will celebrate VE Day on Friday (8th May). 

To remember and give thanks to those who played their part in WW2.

We are urging the community to celebrate at home, safely and adhering to the social distancing guidance, to help stop the spread of Covid-19. 

Cumbria County Council has put together a special VE Day at home pack, which can be downloaded here. 

A message from the Lake District National Park

We are supporting the Lake District National Park in appealing for you to stay at home this holiday weekend, and not to visit Cumbria. 

We have one of the highest Covid-19 infection rates in the UK - ignoring the government's #StayHomeSaveLives guidance will cost lives.
