COVID-19 / Coronavirus update

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak develops the Government are holding daily press conferences to announce changes to the advice and new support being put in place.

Across Bedfordshire, all blue light services (police, fire, ambulance), NHS organisations, unitary councils (Bedford, Luton and Central Bedfordshire) and other key stakeholders such as the voluntary sector, work together in co-ordinating responses to emergencies. These organisations work together as the Bedfordshire Local Resilience Forum (BLRF) to deliver the requirements of the Government’s COBRA Committee, take action and develop plans in this context.

As Government has advised self-isolation and social distancing, the implications of this on our communities and council services is under constant review.

These are unprecedented times and given the pace of change it will be extremely difficult to keep you up to date, therefore, Central Bedfordshire Council has a dedicated section on thier website that they will keep up to date with the latest information specific to Central Bedfordshire.

The link is www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/covidinfo

As well as the latest information on Central Bedfordshire Council services, the web pages include the latest health advice, information for vulnerable groups, information for volunteers and information for businesses. Whilst some of this is still in development, these pages will be updated as more information and advice becomes available.
