Calderdale Council is reminding people that the COVID-19 lockdown is still in place, and is urging people to keep following social distancing rules to help save lives.
Schools and care homes in Calderdale have joined together to enable pupils and residents to share their experiences of life in lockdown, as part of an innovative pen pal programme.
At this tough time we are surrounded by heart-warming acts of kindness and examples of people across Calderdale working around the clock to protect us and keep essential services going.
As we move into the next phase of responding to this crisis, I would like to repeat again my sincere thanks to the vast majority of local residents who have done so much to stay home, stay safe, and help protect our NHS and social care services.
The mission to boost supplies of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in Calderdale continues, with more local businesses coming forward to provide vital items in partnership with Calderdale Council, to help keep frontline care staff and residents safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Garden waste collections in Calderdale will resume from Monday 4 May 2020. The service was temporarily suspended by Calderdale Council and contractors SUEZ due to COVID-19, to provide extra staff support for the main waste and recycling collection service.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet will discuss the financial implications of COVID-19 at its meeting on Monday 27 April 2020. Capturing the financial and organisational impact of coronavirus is part of the Council’s 10 point plan to respond to the risks related to COVID-19.
