Agencies come together to tackle viral threat.

Local agencies – including B&NES, the police, Curo, Clinical Commissioning Groups and the Royal United Hospital – have held a teleconference

and agreed they will continue coordinating their efforts to tackle the Covid 19 threat to this region.

The partners also agreed to 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 during this period, 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”
