On Monday, 4 January, the Prime Minister announced a national lockdown for England.
As rates and hospital admissions continue to increase with a new strain of the virus, it is clear that we must all do all we can to protect our families, protect our community and protect the NHS.
You must follow the new rules and stay at home as much as possible to protect yourself and others.
One in three people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and will be spreading it without realising it - Remember - ‘Hands. Face. Space.’
The council along with our partners at the county council and in the voluntary sector will continue to support the most vulnerable in our community and we urge people to use the Community Helpline that is in place if you need support - 0300 200 1008.
In this issue of eBorough Insight, we look at the new restrictions in England as well as highlight help and support available for mental health and wellbeing at this time.
