The helpline is available to anyone who feels they need it, in particular those who are clinically extremely vulnerable and require help accessing essentials such as food and medicines. People are encouraged to call in on 0300 123 7052 to access that help.
Leader of the council, Cllr Drew Mellor said, “Residents should be reassured that we are ready and prepared for any additional measures which are being taken following this latest government announcement. Our multi-agency approach, which commenced at the start of the pandemic, has continued to operate on an almost daily basis.
“We are working to support residents and businesses and working with our public sector partners, including the NHS, to ensure continued delivery of the services which we know people rely on.”
Cllr Nicola Greene, cabinet member for covid resilience and public health, said, “It is clear from the data that cases in our area continue to rise across all age groups, with hospital admissions also rising, posing a risk to capacity in a matter of weeks.
“We are grateful to the vast majority of local people for following national guidance on social distancing, face coverings and hand hygiene, and for self-isolating when needed.
“I am confident that everyone will continue to do their bit now, staying at home and only having physical contact with those in your household or your exclusive bubble.”
