Cornwall Council has issued guidelines that people “should not plan to visit” while restrictions are in place

Julian German, head of the council, said “cases have increased rapidly and now everyone must step in”

Usually towns like St Ives, Newquay, Looe, Padstow and Truro are popular destinations for New Years Eve

Rachel Wigglesworth, Director of Public Health for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, said: ‘With no events planned, we urge our residents not to congregate in usual venues and celebrate at home wherever they can”

The Isles of Scilly are now the only part of England that is at level one

Matthew Brend, of Brend Hotels, which has 11 properties in Cornwall and Devon, criticized the decision to announce the changes on short notice, calling it a “joke”

Devon & Cornwall now at level 3 from MIDNIGHT TONIGHT 😳 So every New Years Eve booking we spent the whole week booking, confirming the rules, ordering & food, preparing, to prepare, etc etc WHAT JOKE! 🤬🤬🤬

Steve Double, MP for Newquay and St Austell, said: ‘When you look at the very rapid increase in the number of cases that we have seen in Cornwall over the past two weeks it is not a big surprise

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

He added that he “would not be at all surprised” to see a nationwide lockdown in the coming weeks
