FOLLOWING the Prime Minister’s announcement that England will enter into a second national lockdown from Thursday 5 November, Essex County Council (ECC) has been putting plans in place for the continued provision of key services.
The lockdown will have implications for some County Council services, meaning they will be required to adapt their usual operations in order to adhere to new national guidelines.
The second national lockdown won’t involve the same level of restrictions introduced in March and wherever possible ECC services will remain in operation. However, in some instances the national guidelines will mean that some will need to be temporarily paused.
From Thursday 5 November:
Cllr David Finch, Leader of Essex County Council, said: “We are doing everything we can to ensure vital services remain available to Essex residents through lockdown, in line with government guidance and where needed are adapting services and putting additional measures in place so that they can keep running.
“We are in a much stronger position than the first lockdown back in March – we know what works and can move quickly to implement the appropriate government guidance, as we receive it.
“I would like to thank our residents, businesses and employees for their patience at this time, and remind everyone that the most important thing is that we all play our part, follow the rules and stick to social distancing guidance – if we do, it will mean we exit this second lockdown as soon as possible. But we can only do this by working together.”
Guidance around Remembrance Sunday is being shared on ECC’s social media channels and by District, Borough and City councils and faith organisations.
Further guidance and updates on any changes to other services will also be shared via ECC’s website and social media channels when it is available.
Residents are encouraged to visit essex.gov.uk in the first instance if they have any queries as website content is being regularly updated as and when new guidance is received.
