COVID-19 UPDATE – LATEST GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE
IMPORTANT: These restrictions will affect your stay at Skelwith Fold from 31st July 2020 and must be abided by
We hope you are enjoying the Park being back open and the children’s summer holidays. We are certainly pleased to have everyone back.
Today we have been approached by the authorities to ensure our customers continue to be sensible, respect social distancing, and remember to provide information on the firstname.lastname@example.org for each and every stay.
You will all be aware of the spikes in the virus and the restrictions placed on areas such as Blackburn with Darwen, Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle and the Greater Manchester area overnight. We have been instructed to put measures in place for a potential temporary short notice closure of the park should the need arise. We sincerely hope this won’t happen to us – but it could.
Whilst on Holiday:
- If you feel unwell you must ring 119 and arrange a test.
- If you are contacted by Track and Trace at any time whilst here you must notify us immediately.
- You must then return home in your own transport.
It is imperative that you limit the number of people staying in your caravan to limit numbers on the park and comply with recent changes on social distancing. You may have noticed we are not taking a full capacity of tourers for this reason. Please do not invite your friends to visit until we inform you that the restrictions on us have been lifted.
The contact details of every person in your caravan staying or just visiting must be registered through the email@example.com email address. After a reasonable period this information is deleted from our system in line with GDPR regulations. It will only be provided to NHS Track and Trace should it be requested and we will notify you if this situation occurs.
Please be aware that the new restrictions mean that you should not visit your friends in other caravans on the park until further notice, in the same way that you are not allowed to visit your friends in other homes at the moment. We note that under park rules you should also supervise your children at all times whilst they are on the play area – however at this time it is especially important to ensure that children use the provided hand sanitiser before and after playing on the park and to ensure that they keep social distancing. We will also be closing the play areas at 8pm each night.
Please do respect others and the staff here at Skelwith Fold. We have already had three members of our team tested. If our staff become infected, then it is highly likely that we will be forced to close the park once again.
All of this information comes from the newly published ‘Covid 19 early outbreak management of Campsites and Caravan Parks’ and the latest restrictions issued by the government in the last 24hrs.
These are immensely difficult times and many of the new rules are restrictive, but I thank everyone for their continued patience and understanding. Together we will pull through.
