There have been several important changes today –

Northumberland County Council and Government are working together to support businesses through this challenging time. Our businesses are vitally important to our county.
The council has established a Business Hub with a specialist team who will work hard to support businesses and employers. We will support you both during and after the current Coronavirus outbreak.
Northumberland Communities together – CLICK HERE
Northumberland County Council is launching a new initiative to support the phenomenal volunteering networks that have been rallying support across the county in response to COVID-19.
The council is launching ‘Northumberland Communities Together’ – a dedicated team which will help harness the power of local community volunteers while making sure the county’s most vulnerable residents are protected.
Northumbria Police update CLICK HERE
Northumbria Police have confirmed they will look to ‘engage’ and ‘encourage’ the public to follow stay-at-home restrictions – but where necessary will take firmer action.
Government legislation was passed this week that granted police new powers to enforce the restrictions put in place to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and save lives.

Stay at home and comply with these common sense rules.
Every time someone decides to go against the rules is endangering the lives of so many people.
We have had some very worrying reports about older people meeting in groups around the town, clearly not taking the situation seriously and they are at incredible risk.
This is not a game !
Whoever you are whatever your age this is one of the serious situations the world has known.
People are dying in great numbers
The death rate can be reduced by everyone INCLUDING YOU & your family / friends just by complying with the rules. #Simple
We are dealing with a very large number of enquiries today and continue to work closely with PTC and many other organisations.
