Dear residents and partners,
To help keep West Sussex safe we are reminding residents of the simple steps to take to stop the spread of coronavirus. Please take a look at the four key recommendations below.
Earlier this week we were notified of an outbreak of COVID-19 at The Downsman pub in Crawley and since then Public Health England has been organising contact-tracing of staff and customers. The full statement on our website can provide you with more information if you, or someone you know, has recently visited the pub.
We are also now publishing weekly data specifically relating to the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in West Sussex. You can find this report in the Local Outbreak Control Plan area of our website.
Construction work starts on the first of our seven temporary cycleway schemes next week. The Chichester scheme will connect the Spitalfield Lane hospital area with the city’s railway station, creating a 2km-long “keyworker corridor” for safe cycling. You can read the full article here.
Now that the summer holidays have started, we wanted to let you know that a new programme of services for families, children and young people aged 0-19 (up to 25 with Special Educational Needs and Disability) is now available. Our Early Help service continues to offer support for families during the summer holidays. Contact details for our teams can be found at the end of the programme.
Finally, remember that you can get the latest Keep West Sussex Safe information on our website or by looking out for #KeepWestSussexSafe on our Facebook and Twitterpages.
Thank you for your continued support.
