Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We're doing our best to support residents, businesses and communities affected by coronavirus COVID-19.

This includes partnering with community groups and organisations to provide food hubs, a sympathetic and flexible approach to council tax and debtors and support for businesses in the city.

We're also part of a wider partnership, the Lancashire Resilience Forum, which includes councils and emergency services and we are in dialogue with the NHS and Public Health England.

Together we are actively monitoring the situation, responding to advice and carrying out the necessary actions.
