Due to the volume of enquiries we are receiving and the critical nature of Environmental Health work in relation to developing the countywide response to the Covid-19 situation, we are unable to provide specific advice in relation to enquiries regarding individual businesses and how they manage the risks of Covid-19.

We recommend you follow the national guidance available at: There are various guides and other useful information for employers, employees and others that have now been published, and this central website is updated regularly with all developments.

If your enquiry is about something other than Covid-19, we will endeavour to respond as soon as practicable; however, due to current resource demands this may take us a little longer than usual, and we would ask you to bear with us.
