Visiting, Staying & Living in Somerset

Stay at Home for Somerset

Stay at Home for Somerset


As the nation is now under further national restrictions encouraging people to stay home, Somerset County Council’s Public Health leaders are asking everyone in the county to pull together to keep coronavirus at bay and support the #StayHomeForSomerset campaign.

Somerset has seen coronavirus cases rising at a steady rate.  Although the local numbers seem comparatively low compared to other parts of the country, they have been, and continue to increase. Lockdown will be vital to flatten the curve – and bring the numbers back down – so all must play their part.

The campaign wants to fire up the amazing community spirit shown in Somerset throughout the lockdown earlier this year – and recognise that “we are all in it together.”

From now until December 2, the county council is asking people to take ‘selfie’, featuring the name of, or photo of, who they are staying home for.  It could be to protect a vulnerable family member or friend or because you want to protect the NHS from extra pressure.  The photos can then be uploaded to social media using the hashtag #StayHomeForSomerset.
