It’s important that we all play our part, be sensible, wash our hands often, and maintain a distance from anyone who is showing symptoms or is at particular risk from the virus.
The approach we are taking is under continuous review, underpinned by national Government advice, and the civic response to this outbreak is being guided by the five point action plan below.
You can find helpful information and updates on the Council’s homepage, where you can find health advice, information about Council services – such as bin collections, benefits and public events – and support if you are a business or employer.
We know that when it comes to times of crisis, Manchester people go above and beyond.
We come together, we follow advice, we help a neighbour in need, we will drop in on isolated people in our communities (if it’s safe to do so) and we will get through this.
Sir Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council
