Changes to services throughout the coronavirus outbreak

Information about changes to our services throughout coronavirus pandemic.

We are encouraging and recommending members of the public to continue to wear face coverings, unless exempt, in all of our buildings and venues, to protect each other and staff. Helping to reduce the spread of coronavirus, this will enable us to maintain the provision of services for those who need them most.

And while the number of people allowed in buildings will increase, we are urging the public to continue to be considerate of one another by giving people space. This is in addition to continuing with regular handwashing, the use of hand sanitiser, which will be in place in council buildings, and ensuring mouths and noses are covered when coughing or sneezing.

You can follow us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest updates.
