'Stay Home' Says Whitby Town Council

'Stay Home' Says Whitby Town Council

Published by Jon Burke at 2:09pm 11th May 2020.

Whitby Town Council is the latest organisation to repeat the message that it wants people to continue to stay away during coronavirus.

It's after Prime Minister Boris Johnson's statement last night, in which a relaxation on rules about travelling was announced.

However,the authority is still asking people to stay at home, a message which has been controversially dropped by the government.

It has posted this statement:

"Stay Alert means Stay Away

Following Sunday's announcement by the Prime Minister, we are awaiting detailed government guidance, but the safety of residents remains the Town Council's priority. For now, tourism businesses in Whitby remain closed and we urge everyone to continue to #StayHome

Thank you to everyone for supporting Whitby and North Yorkshire at this difficult time, we can't wait to welcome you all back again, once it's safe to do so and our hotels, pubs, restaurants and attractions are."

No stay alert does not mean stay away at all. Stop making it up, although the toilets and businesses may not be open people can now drive to visit places for their exercise whether you like it or not.

Zara, if you want to exercise you don't need your car to do it, do you.

Selfish people like you are what's spreading the disease further every day, and that's the truth whether YOU like it or not.

Lucylastik - As i live in the country, no i do not need a car to exercise. Not sure why i am selfish considering that i have never believed that lockdown was the right way to deal with this HOWEVER i have abided by all the conditions - have you? There is no legal reason that people cannot drive to Whitby and go for a walk if that is what they choose to do. It is a long time since i bothered going to Whitby not surprising by the insular people who live there.
