Advice and guidance to help borough stay safe
Residents are being urged to look out for the latest information and advice around coronavirus.
Essential guidance to help borough residents stay safe during the pandemic is being sent out to every household in the borough from next week.
It has been put together by Dudley Council in conjunction with health chiefs at Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
It is believed it will be particularly useful for the most vulnerable people in the borough, who may not have access to the latest information through other forms of communication.
Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Council, said:
Supporting the most vulnerable in our borough is an absolute priority for both the council and health services.
I think during these unprecedented times it is more important than ever that we keep our residents well-informed, to give them the best chance of staying safe and healthy.
This will complement the work we are already doing locally, as well as everything that is happening nationally to raise awareness of what we all need to be doing at this time.
Dr David Hegarty, chair of Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group, said:
Making sure that those most at risk from the virus know how to protect themselves is our top priority.
We know that this will be an especially worrying time for those with serious underlying health conditions.
We hope this information will provide reassurance, and complement any national guidance or information which may be provided in the coming weeks.
