Bath & North East Somerset Council leader Councillor Dine Romero has chaired a teleconference of local agencies who are working together to protect the local community from the COVID-19 threat.
As well as the council, the meeting involved Avon & Somerset Police, Curo, the RUH and the Bath and North East Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (BaNES CCG), all of whom are working closely together to protect communities.
The partners agreed to continue to coordinate their efforts and offer mutual aid and support, with their top priority being protecting the public, particularly the most vulnerable.
The group also recognised that this is a fast-moving situation and will convene regularly, complementing the existing work of the Local Resilience Forum.
Councillor Dine Romero said: “We must work together as partners and as communities to protect ourselves and those around us.
“It is vital that everyone follows the most up-to-date advice and we ask the public to follow national guidance on COVID-19, to keep up to date with any service changes through our websites and social media, and to offer support and help wherever possible to neighbours and the local community.
“We will continue to work closely together to protect the public during this challenging period.”
