Latest Event Statement – COVID-19
Cheshire East Council remains an area of heightened resource which is to say that the levels of Covid-19 cases in some areas are of a concern for its residents and the Council.
This also means that additional resources are in place to assist with enhanced track and trace and covid-19 vaccinations. As Landlord of many of the Public Spaces Cheshire East Council advise that any events/activities that are planned after 19 July 2021 on its land will still need to be managed within the Governments stage 3 road map. Event managers using Council land must try to introduce a track and trace method for admission to their event, maintain social distancing, continue with enhanced cleaning of facilities and surfaces. Where required face coverings worn when social distancing is more difficult, for example in a marquee or enclosed space.
