With the impact of COVID-19, we are asking people not to take risks, putting additional pressures on our emergency services.

Injuries can be prevented by following the Firework Code. If you do suffer a burn, ensure you:

· Cool the burn under cold running water for at least ten minutes.

· After the burn has been cooled, cover it with cling film or a clean plastic bag.

· Call 999 if necessary. Always seek medical advice for a baby or child that has been burned.”

The Firework Code:

· Plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable, and ensure it finishes before 11pm

· Only buy fireworks which carry the CE mark, keep them in a closed box and use them one at a time

· Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary

· Light the firework at arm's length with a taper and stand well back

· Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks

· Never return to a firework once it has been lit

· Don't put fireworks in pockets and never throw them

· Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators

· Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire

· Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving.

You can be fined up to £5,000 and imprisoned for up to 6 months for selling or using fireworks illegally. You could also get an on-the-spot fine of £90.

Fireworks can also cause a great deal of distress to animals. We are supporting RSPCA’s ‘Bang Out Of Order’ campaign, encouraging the responsible use of fireworks and the adoption of tighter regulations concerning their use.

NHS Covid-19 App

NHS app Dear residents and partners,

The new NHS COVID-19 app launches today. It allows you to report symptoms, order a coronavirus test, and check into venues by simply scanning a QR code.

We’re encouraging all residents to download the new app to help prevent the spread of coronavirus in West Sussex.

Some of our businesses, such as restaurants and pubs, will be legally required to display a QR code poster for you to scan. This means that if you visit the venue and later test positive for coronavirus, other app users who were there at the same time may be sent an alert, if necessary.

The app does this while protecting your anonymity. Nobody, including the government, will know who or where a particular user is. Instead, your postcode district (the first part of your postcode) helps the app work out where the virus is spreading.

Without a vaccine or treatment, we all need to do everything we can to help stop the spread of coronavirus in our county. The new app is an important part of the government’s programme. By downloading and using the app, you’ll be helping to protect those around you – friends, family, colleagues and local communities.

More information about the app is available on the GOV.UK website.

Earlier this week, the Prime Minister announced new guidelines to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. Please ensure you are following the rules – you can remind yourself of the very latest guidance online.

Finally, a reminder that our community hub service is still running for elderly and vulnerable residents who may need extra support during this difficult time. If you, or someone you know needs extra help please visit our community hub page.

Thank you for your continued support.
