css-14iz86j-BoldText {font-weight: bold;} Vacationers are encouraged to “get home as soon as possible” as Cornwall is subject to Tier 3 coronavirus restrictions from midnight onwards

The Cornwall Council has issued guidelines which also state that people “shouldn’t make plans to visit” while restrictions are in place

Julian German, chairman of the council, said: “Cases have increased rapidly and each now needs to be stepped up”

Usually cities like St Ives, Newquay, Looe, Padstow and Truro popular New Year’s Eve destinations

Rachel Wigglesworth, Public Health Director for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, said: “With no scheduled events going on, we urge our residents not to gather and celebrate at home in the usual places always you can “

However, in a group of up to six people, people may see friends and family members they do not live with or with whom they do not have a bubble of support

The Isles of Scilly are now the only part of England that is in the first stage

Matthew Brend of Brend Hotels with 11 offices in Cornwall and Devon criticized the decision to announce the changes at short notice, calling it “a joke”

Devon & Cornwall is now in Tier 3 MIDNIGHT TODAY 😳 So we have to order food, order & drinks, prepare etc. every New Year’s Eve booking for which we have booked the whole week to confirm the rules etc etc, cancel now with less than 24 hours notice WHAT A JOKE! 🤬🤬🤬

Steve Double, MP for Newquay and St Austell said: “Given the very rapid increase in cases that we have seen in Cornwall over the past few weeks, this is not a huge surprise

“It is clear that this new variant of the virus is much stronger and spreads easier and faster”

He added that he “wouldn’t be surprised at all” if a national ban were introduced in the coming weeks
