Stay home, protect the NHS, Save lives

Following the announcement from the Prime Minister Selby District Council is reassuring residents and businesses that it will continue to support local communities after further national restrictions were introduced.

Leader of Selby District Council, Cllr Mark Crane, said, “We’re seeing an alarming rise in cases across the country and that situation is mirrored here in the Selby district. We must all remember to follow the advice to wear face coverings, wash our hands and follow social distancing advice.

“Once again we find ourselves in a fast-moving situation but we will continue to do all we can to make sure residents, businesses and communities are supported. We’re working hard to respond to the latest changes and will continue to deliver our services in a safe, calm and considered way. This is how we can best support people and businesses in our district.

“Our work to support our community continues both in terms of our behind the scenes work and on the frontline too. We are also working hard to ensure businesses understand the latest restrictions and are aware of the new support that is available. We’re waiting for detailed guidance from the Government about how many of the new funding and support schemes should be administered and are working hard to get this information to the businesses that need it.

“We continue to share information through our website, by telephone or email and through our social media channels too in order to keep everyone up to date.

“The way our staff, communities and businesses have come together during this pandemic has demonstrated the very best of our district at a really difficult time. The vaccine roll-out is a light at the end of this lockdown tunnel and I know we will pull together to get through this difficult time."
