Wiltshire Council Leader Cllr Philip Whitehead will be joined by Terence Herbert, Chief Executive of Wiltshire Council, and Kate Blackburn, Director of Public Health for Wiltshire, to help guide people through the latest information and regulations.

The broadcast will be an opportunity to hear about the latest rates of COVID-19 cases in Wiltshire, the arrangements in place to mitigate the spread of the virus and how the council is continuing to support residents and businesses at this time.

Residents can submit their questions about COVID-19 and the local response in advance by emailing no later than 12 noon on Monday 1 March.

Cllr Philip Whitehead said: “Following the recent Government’s announcement on the plans to gradually start easing some of the national lockdown restrictions, we hope this broadcast will help clarify the latest details.

“There is plenty to update on, and I would urge people to send in any questions in advance so that the broadcast is as helpful and informative for them as possible.”
