Message from our Wiltshire Councillor regarding COVID-19Dear AllYou are probably overwhelmed with the huge amount of sometimes conflicting information that is coming at you from so many different sources. Please may I urge you to focus on those sources that are authoritative and have the most direct effect on us all. In the case of Wiltshire Council I can assure you that our Council Leader, Philip Whitehead, our two Chief Executive Officers and all the Council staff are working flat out to make sure that all our key services continue to function through our own staffing difficulties and the challenges and demands of fast changing circumstances. If you experience changes, I assure you they will be for good reason.
For the most up to date information on Council services that may be affected by COVID-19 and health advice and information, please visit http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/public-health-coronavirus. This will be regularly updated for all Council services and will hold all information in a central place. I know that all our parish councils and various volunteer organisations, some spontaneously formed, are working hard to help with the plethora of needs that are emerging. Wiltshire Council has provided them with a community toolkit to support them and the communities. It contains useful information and links to key resources. This can be downloaded from our website http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/public-health-coronavirus Please feel free to contact me if you have concerns or questions, which you would like me to pursue.
