Overview

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In line with the latest government guidelines, you are no longer required to wear face coverings or observe social distancing in council-run facilities. However, we appreciate that you may wish to continue to wear face coverings when visiting for your own safety - and you are welcome to do so.

The government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.

For your safety, we will be maintaining enhanced cleaning in all our facilities and will continue to provide hand sanitisers for your use when visiting.

You will still be able to sign into our buildings using the QR code for track and trace although this is no longer a legal requirement.
