About this website during Coronvirus
This website is not one that is used by local agencies during response. However, it does provide information about COVID-19 (see latest blog post). It is important to signpost you to the most appropriate sources of information:
To everyone across Wiltshire and Swindon, it’s a simple message
HANDS, FACE, SPACE.
The most important action we can all take across the county, in fighting the spread of coronavirus, is to wash our hands, cover our faces and make space to control infection rates.
All partners across Wiltshire and Swindon are working together to take all the necessary steps to slow the spread of the virus and to ensure we are well prepared for increases in cases across the county. This activity is being expertly led by the Directors of Public Health at Wilshire Council and Swindon Borough Council.
NHS services across the area are ready to help minimise the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and deal with an upturn in patient numbers caused by the outbreak.
Staff across councils, NHS services, police, fire and voluntary and community sector organisations are all working extremely hard to make sure we can continue to deliver our essential services and support the most vulnerable in our communities.
As we enter the Winter period it is important that the public prepares for any severe weather and the LRF fully supports the Met Office’s WinterReady campaign.
