Watford Borough Council will be making some small changes in light of the government’s recent announcements on COVID-19 restrictions.
 
The most recent update is that people are allowed to exercise more than once a day, exercise outside with one member of another household and for some non-essential workers to return to work, if they could not work at home.

The following changes will be made:
-          The opening of closed public spaces car parks, including the car parks to Cassiobury Park, Cheslyn Gardens, King George V Playing Fields and Radlett Road Playing Fields. 
-          The opening of any public tennis courts and West Herts Golf Club. Outdoor gyms and playgrounds will remain shut.
-          Reintroduction of parking enforcement on St Albans Road and Whippendell Road to ensure public safety. Enforcement will remain relaxed in residential streets in a Controlled Parking Zone and free parking will still be available in all council operated car parks.


The Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said:
 
"These are difficult times and people understandably want clarity about what they can do. We are making these changes in our town following the new advice but we still have a long way to go in tackling this virus.  It is important that people continue to stay at home as much as they can, that we keep 2 metres away from other people when we are out and wash our hands when we return home. I’d like to thank everyone in Watford who has been staying safe, following the advice and trying to save as many lives as they possibly can. I know that by working together we will come through this."
