A local media outlet has published misleading information about Coronavirus and the council on their website and on social media.
Our offices are not closed and we are not undertaking a ‘deep clean’. Like many organisations we are simply upgrading our normal office cleaning arrangements and asking employees to work remotely wherever possible as a preventative and precautionary measure.
Original message – 10 March 2020
In the light of the recent coronavirus outbreak the council have taken precautions to ensure that essential services will continue to be provided.
These include extra cleaning regimes at our offices and updated information about hand washing to our staff. Many of our staff can work from home and the council is encouraging this.
We are cancelling / deferring all non-essential meetings and we ask that you keep visits to our offices to a minimum and instead to contact us using our website or phone.
