Good evening all, we would like to share a statement following this evening's #coronavirus update.
Following the announcement made by the prime minister this evening (23 March) about strict new measures to tackle the spread of the coronavirus, we're considering implications across all our services.
Updates on individual services will appear on our website luton.gov.uk/coronavirus and will also be promoted via our social media channels @lutoncouncil.
Please do not visit council buildings tomorrow as they will be closed to the public.
We have not been made aware of any change in arrangements for schools, which remain open to the children of key workers and vulnerable children only.
We'd like to thank you all for your understanding, patience, and support in these extraordinary times. We continue to be amazed by the extent to which communities are helping each other, and we thank everyone for playing their part.
Our priority remains protecting the most vulnerable in our town and we will continue to do so.
