Gwent Local Resilience Forum
Posted on Wednesday 18th March 2020
Newport City Council is now working as part of the Gwent Local Resilience Forum (GLRF) as part of a wider Government, Welsh Government and NHS strategy in response to Covid-19.
Covid-19 has been declared a pandemic and has triggered Major Incident arrangements locally.
To coordinate the response, the GLRF is meeting regularly and has set up multi-agency reporting structures. Several work groups are now contributing to agreed local objectives, to:
- Support the NHS and wider health system
- Minimise the spread of the virus
- Protect our most vulnerable residents
- Maintain essential local public services
For national updates on the COVID-19 visit www.gov.uk/coronavirus or to find out what to do if you think you have symptoms, please visit https://www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk/
For local updates, please visit the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) website https://abuhb.nhs.wales/coronavirus/latest-official-information-from-the-health-board-on-coronavirus-covid-19/ and social media channels (ABUHB is the NHS organisation in our area).
The council and LRF partners will share regular updates on changes to local services and will only signpost to only trusted sources of information.
Please be a good neighbour and take care of yourself and each other.
Thank you for your support
