The Parish Council have today taken steps to implement the Emergency Plan, in view of the fact that the Government are suggesting that all people who are over seventy years of age and are vulnerable should self- isolate.

Chagford has coped with many emergency’s in the past, from floods to stand pipes, snow, blizzard and ice let alone numerous flu viruses and latterly Foot and Mouth. We usually find that friends and neighbours step up to the mark but we do not want anyone putting themselves at risk.

The Parish Council have today taken steps to implement the Emergency Plan, in view of the fact that the Government are suggesting that all people who are over seventy years of age and are vulnerable should self- isolate.

The instructions for everyone with any form of flu-like symptoms and having a temperature of 37.8 (normal being 36.8) should self- isolate for at least seven days. This may well include families having to isolate.

Each councillor has taken responsibility for an area of the Parish. The Councillor will contact each household and provide information of how to get help or advice. 

The aim is to try and zone the areas so that helpers are not distributing bugs.

If people wish to volunteer to support neighbours please contact the Clerk or the Chairman. It is essential that only one person is supporting a possible ‘infected household’ or the virus may be spread throughout the Parish. 

If you are in need of help or assistance in any way please contact the Chairman Gay Hill or the Clerk Sarah Curtis in the following ways.

Gay Hill chairman@chagford-parish.co.uk  telephone  432424

Sarah Curtis clerk@chagford-parish.co.uk  telephone 432999

There will be at least daily contact with all the Councillors so help should be at hand in a timely manner.
