‘Some people still not getting the message’ – Fielding

Councillor Mark Fielding has said that some people at the weekend did not heed the message to stay at home following reports of visits to caravan parks and people residing at their second homes.

In a statement to Causeway Coast Community Councillor Fielding said;

“I am pleased that police officers were out in the Portrush area at the weekend carrying out vehicle checkpoints, engaging with drivers asking the reason for their journey, explaining the dangers of Covid-19 and encouraging them to social distance and only make essential trips.

“The Government guidance is Clear – for people planning to visit second homes or holiday premises during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is that Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, campsites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays. People must remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.

“As we approach the Easter weekend the wisest thing to do is don’t come to the North Coast, not now, nor the Easter weekend, and until restrictions are relaxed.”
