Help for residents and local businesses
LEADER of Epping Forest District Council, Councillor Chris Whitbread said: “In light of the Government’s recent advice regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we’ve set up a team dedicated to answering questions or signposting customers to where more information is available.
“To help ease calls and save you time, we have added a frequently asked questions (FAQs) page to our website where you may find your question has already been answered.
“If your question does not appear on the FAQ page, please call our helpline on 01992 564088 to talk to our team.”
Councillor Whitbread added: “This is not a health service and it’s still important to call the NHS on 111 if you have any concerns about symptoms. However, if it’s about the council or our community, this new service will try to help our residents and local businesses deal with the effects of the coronavirus.
“We will keep our website up to date as the situation evolves and advice from the Government changes. We understand everyone has their concerns over health, finance and family and we will help where possible.”
