Social Distancing

Creating safer places in Babergh and Mid Suffolk

Across the county, more businesses have reopened and are welcoming back customers.

The guidance for social distancing has been amended and where 2 metre distances are not possible, the recommendation is to maintain a ‘1 metre plus’ distance. Despite this change, it is important that we do provide spaces for social distancing to limit the continued threat and spread of Covid-19.

New guidelines for wearing face coverings have been introduced, and it is now mandatory to wear a face covering inside shops, supermarkets, banks and takeaways as well as on public transport.

The Government has produced a Guide to Face Coverings and where to wear them, which provides additional information.

Support for town and parish councils 

We have produced resources to help town and parish councils as they identify requirements in their own areas:

We have also created a series of downloadable posters with guidance and reminders to help maintain social distancing:
