Council Leader Oliver Hemsley has issued the following statement in response to the closure of Rutland Water parks:

“We support Anglian Water’s decision to close Rutland Water parks in response to coronavirus (COVID-19). This is the right decision given the severity of the current situation. The government is advising people against any unnecessary contact and interaction with others. This guidance on social distancing applies even if you do not have COVID-19 symptoms and is important to help protect the vulnerable by reducing transmission of the virus.”
