And actually the numbers in Northumberland are really quite low compared to other parts of the NE (and compared to where I live in Leeds, which isn’t locked down!). We have family there, and though of course cautious for them, not massively worried atm. Everything is so spaced out, you’ll be ok.
Im a local, numbers are low and the county is not highly populated in the most part. Enjoy the place……were in lockdown because all of the other areas of the NE have such high and rising numbers. Stupid but we have to get on with it…….
Feel free to lick the locals but not ones from Ashington, they don’t taste overly good.
we are off to the area on our usual October 1/2 term break. Nothing in the restrictions looks like they will impact on us. Long walks on the beach with dog, some road riding and trip to Barter Books still all perfectly doable.
I’m in the north east and still waiting for the Government to publish the rules some 5 hours or so after their announcement. I have plans for a weekend outside of the region already. Think I can go, hope so.
Unless you were planning large scale fraternisation or being in pubs after 10pm – no problem.
Case numbers per 100k in N/Land are low 20’s; you would have cause for concern if going to Sunderland or South Shields.
