COVID-19 COMMUNITY ACTION

COVID 19 – Upper Clatford, Anna Valley and Red Rice

Summary: what you can and cannot do during the national lockdown

You must stay at home. The single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.

You should follow this guidance immediately.

Leaving home

You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:

  • shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person
  • go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
  • exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
  • meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
  • seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
  • attend education or childcare - for those eligible

If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local - unless it is necessary to go further, for example to go to work. Stay local means stay in the village, town, or part of the city where you live.

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable you should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential. You should not attend work

Meeting others

  • You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or are not in a support bubble with (if you are legally permitted to form one).
  • You may exercise on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble. This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
  • You cannot meet other people you do not live with, or have not formed a support bubble with, unless for a permitted reason.
  • Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household.

Education

  • Colleges, primary and secondary schools will remain open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. All other children will learn remotely until February half term.
  • Early years settings remain open.
  • Higher Education provision will remain online until mid February for all except future critical worker courses.

COVID 19 cases in our Parish

The current COVID 19 cases within our parish has risen over the last week but is still below the current national average (580 cases per 100,000 people).

For week ending 4th January for the area covering Clatford, Chilbolton and Barton Stacey, there were 21 new cases (up from 9). This is equivalent to 345 cases per 100,000 people (up from 170). Andover South had 24 cases equivalent to 297 per 100,000 people.

The best way to keep the incidence and risk low is to stick to the guidance.

For continuous updates, please see https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/interactive-map.

Test and Trace Self Isolation Support Payments

TVBC have asked us to advertise the following:

From 28 September 2020, individuals will be entitled to a Test and Trace Support Payment of £500 if they:

  1. Have been told to stay at home and self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, either because they have tested positive for coronavirus or have recently been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.
  2. Live within the Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC) area
  3. Are employed or self-employed
  4. Are unable to work from home and will lose income as a result
  5. Are currently receiving one of the following benefits: Universal Credit, Working Tax Credit, income-based Employment and Support Allowance, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income Support, Housing Benefit and/or Pension Credit.

The Council will also be able to make a discretionary £500 lump sum payment in exceptional circumstances to an individual who meets the main qualifying criteria for the Test and Trace Support Payment (i.e. they are a low-income worker who is unable to work because they are self-isolating) but is not in receipt of qualifying benefits and could suffer financial hardship as a result of not being able to work, providing they have a minimum income of £80 per week

For the purposes of this scheme a low income is defined as less than:

  • £384.62 per week (£20,000 a year) joint income if you’re in a couple
  • £384.62 per week (£20,000 a year) if you’re a single parent and your children live with you
  • £257.69 per week (£13,400 a year) if you’re a single adult

This payment is designed to support people on low incomes, if they will lose income as a result of self-isolating, and to encourage them to get tested if they have symptoms. This is important to help stop the transmission of COVID-19 and avoid further economic and societal restrictions.

The scheme will last until 31 January 2021.

These payments are available from 28 September 2020. Someone told to self-isolate on or after 28 September (but before the scheme is operational in TVBC) will be able to make a backdated claim for payment.

Food availability and supplies

Your Parish Council has collated a list of local food providers who are willing and able to supply produce to local residents.

Please note that where a delivery service is listed as available, it is subject to availability. Local volunteers are on standby to assist with delivery to anybody registered as vulnerable or in need of assistance.

As a local initiative we can help our local suppliers support us by using them where possible. If receiving a call from any provider, be particularly careful to establish that it’s a genuine call before divulging any payment details.

This will be updated as needed. Please contact [email protected] if you can provide a service that prioritises the most needy in our community.

And of course, if you have not yet registered, either to help or for help, please click the COVID link to submit your details.

Pharmacy Collections

We are aware that prescription collections are a common task for volunteers and sought feedback in the previous newsletter to assist in developing an improved collection and delivery system.  Increasing numbers of residents are now asking for prescription collections.  Several pharmacies in Andover are now trialling a delivery service by volunteers from Andover direct to vulnerable residents at their homes, and this may be expanded to other pharmacies in the future during the lockdown period.  This is in its early stage and customers will be advised if they are in scope.  We will remain aligned to the trial and provide updates when received.

Clatford Store and Post Office offer a free and convenient service through Stockbridge Pharmacy (01264 810 624) so that prescrptions can be issued by them and collected from the Clatford Store or delivered direct to your home. This is set up by completing the Form attached below and dropping it into Clatford Store or Stockbridge Pharmacy.
