Nope, the Metro article I quoted was dated Nov 2017. 

Unless you have a better source? 
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

One Cornish expert says the massive increase in Covid in Cornwall is NOT due to the G7 summit while another national expert says it is.  Whatever one's view, G7 venues were in the Falmouth and St Ives clusters which have some of the very highest case rates/100k behind the leading clusters around Newquay (a very common destination for younger tourists).  Leading Newquay cluster has 837.5 cases/100k. (You might like to compare that to where you live to see why there is much concern here.)

Whereas just weeks ago Cornwall was actually covid-cluster free (!!!), now only 12 Cornish data cluster areas out of 73 have no cases presently !  And we haven't reached peak holiday season yet, which, judging by the traffic already and numbers of people in super-markets etc, is going to be absolutely horrendous.

I am pleased that 18 yr-olds can now book a jab and there are plenty of drop-in vaccination centres with queues of mainly young people - great!  But if you (poor you) are heading in our direction over the summer, do take care because social distancing isn't really being adhered to:  there is a complacency - "I've paid through the nose for my staycation and I'm going to just get on with it" - in the air along with the virus. 
Accomm' providers have really hiked their prices for the covid-staycation market and, stupidly in my humble opinion, folk are paying thousands per week to stay here.  Hope they don't mind the crowds on the beaches and where-ever, or the traffic jams.  Enjoy your stay if you can, but you might wish to think more carefully next year about your staycation destination !!  Lol 
Please also take a test before you travel:  if you or family member test positive it will obviously b****r up your holiday plan, but we don't need any more carriers thanks - we have obviously provided hospitality to quite enough carriers already.

Cornwall covid update - if you are still coming here for a summer break DO NOT go to Newquay if you can avoid:  highest of the Newquay clusters covid rates is presently 1,184/100k. That's one in 84.5 peop's (no doubt with so many others undetected) who have been potentially/actually wandering around with covid-19 on your campsite, in your hotel, next to you on the (very) crowded beach, in the pub/restaurant or in the supermarket !!  Take care and please do still wear a mask in crowds/shops - thanks.

Just remember the Queen is paid by us to do a job, so if her Council Tax is cheap we pay less. Tourism pays her salary but Brexit may make the Soverinty a liability?


If you follow the guidelines you will be safe I thought. But here the distancing has gone to pot. So double jabbed (Pfizer) and after a trip to the supermarket, trying to avoid the people pushing past me, I think I may have caught Covid. The same symptoms as the side effects of the original jab, but far more severe- sore throat, runny nose, cough that gave me brain pain, totally spaced out to the extent I didn't really know what I was doing. On the bright side my arm didn't hurt. Ok two weeks later, just about fine I think, but the air quality is terrible now because of the wind now from the East, so that will give a sore throat and a cough.


It's going crazy here with the Delta variant and some areas are locking down. Take care everyone.

Broadcasting live from West Kernow -  "This local Derby is really hotting up with Newquay West (1229/100k) unbelievably now pipping Newquay East (1204/100k) on covid counts.  Previously Newquay East held the record at a lower 1,184, but Newquay West's defending has obviously been tested and they have just not been able to fend off the onslaught of covid carriers compared to N East.  But their scores are still close and all to play for in this taught local Derby with August looming."
