COVID update

Nottinghamshire’s new ‘very high’ alert level

30/10/2020

As the whole of Nottinghamshire moves from local COVID alert level ‘high’ to ‘very high’ on Friday 30 October, we want you to know that we are here for you and will continue to carry out our core functions, albeit with increased vigilance around social distancing in order to keep our staff and the public safe.

There will be no change to the way in which we respond to emergencies, and we will carry on with our planned audits to COVID-secure business premises and supporting the most vulnerable in our communities with Safe and Well visits

Nottinghamshire’s infection rates are among the highest in the country and continue to rise rapidly.  The new restrictions will be reviewed in 28 days’ time.

Chief Fire Officer John Buckley said: “Throughout the pandemic we have maintained our core functions in responding to incidents, protecting the most vulnerable in our society, supporting our partners, such as East Midlands Ambulance Service, and helping out with the delivery of food and medication in our local communities.

“As we move into this next phase of the pandemic, we are constantly reviewing our Business Continuity Plans so that we can carry on providing the professional emergency service on which our communities depend.

“I would urge everyone to play their part and follow these new restrictions; support each other, look out for their neighbours and loved ones, particularly those who are older or vulnerable.  We have to do all we can to stop the spread of COVID-19 and we can do this by working together to stick to the rules and follow the guidelines.”
