The majority of people are staying indoors and following Government guidance despite warm Easter weather in South Cheshire, writes Jonathan White.

Good Friday and Easter Saturday yesterday saw the warmest weather of the year so far.

People who did venture from home adhered to social distancing measures to help stop the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and save lives.

Popular outdoor areas around Nantwich and Crewe would normally be packed with those exercising and relaxing, including Joey the Swan recreation area in Wistaston, King George V playing fields in Crewe, and Barony Fields and Nantwich Lake in Nantwich, along with the Crewe to Nantwich Greenway between the two towns.

But these locations were largely quiet with just a few people exercising and maintaining their distance.

Many people are also choosing to shop weekly, fortnightly, or book a click & collect or delivery slot.

Individuals are currently only permitted to leave their home for the following very limited purposes:
-shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
-one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
-any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person-travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home.

To help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with coronavirus:
-wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds-use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available-wash your hands as soon as you get home
-cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
-put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards.
