Charnwood Borough Council has pledged to support communities through the coronavirus pandemic and keep them informed about possible changes to services.
Cllr Jonathan Morgan, Leader of the Council, said: “This is a serious situation and our priority is and will always be the health and wellbeing of everyone living, working and visiting Charnwood.
“We are implementing our business continuity plans to ensure our services remain operational and available to serve and support our communities.
“I would like to assure people that we are following the latest guidance and advice from the Government, Public Health England and the NHS at all times.
“Following the most recent announcement by Government on March 16, we are anticipating that some of our services will need to adapt and change temporarily.
“Officers are reviewing the announcement to understand the full implications for our services and communities and we will be providing further updates very soon.
“To help keep people informed of any potential changes we have created a section on the Council website to update people on any changes to services. We would encourage people to visit the site – www.charnwood.gov.uk/coronavirus.
“We will also highlight any changes to services on our other channels including social media and email alerts. Please follow our social media accounts or sign up to the email alerts.
“Charnwood has a great community spirit and people will want to help others. We will be supporting and enabling this effort, working with partners across Leicestershire.”
Last week the government announced business rates discounts and relief to help businesses and the Council has pledged to implement this as soon as possible. Further guidance by the government is due to be published shortly.
