Extremely vulnerable residents who need help getting food supplies or medical prescriptions - either because they are in the high-risk, ‘shielded’ group or have other specific difficulties - are being urged to get in touch with Cornwall Council or Volunteer Cornwall. The Council together with NHS Kernow and Volunteer Cornwall are supporting communities across Cornwall to ensure residents who need help during the COVID-19 pandemic are getting assistance.Residents who can get help could fall into different groups depending on whether they are shielded or not:

People who need care and support in Cornwall are calling on everyone who can, to urgently step up and apply for a role in Cornwall’s care sector.
The call for more carers comes as Cornwall faces an unprecedented demand for care and support during the Coronavirus emergency.
Following the Government’s additional restrictions to help combat the spread of the coronavirus outbreak the Council have today taken the following steps:
• Closed all Council operated public conveniences this is to reduce the risk of infection and discourage the congregation in the town centre, parks and beaches.
• Closed all Council operated play areas. Whilst we are endeavouring to keep parks open for exercise, if the physical distancing restrictions required are not observed by users then these facilities may be closed also.
• Cancelled all markets on The Moor.
