Ryedale District Council recognises that residents may be worried about the impact of Covid-19 and the latest guidance is being followed to protect everyone. The public toilets are being monitored on a daily basis with the objective being to maintain services and minimise the spread of disease.

Ryedale District Council is part of the North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum, along with North Yorkshire County Council, regional public health partners, the NHS, the police and the fire service.

Together, the members of the Forum are working closely together to plan for the significant challenges that might arise as a result of COVID-19.

As part of their preparations, RDC has reviewed the business continuity plans, detailed planning is being undertaken, and scenario sessions are taking place, based on the latest expert national guidance.

While RDC does not expect a worst case scenario, they are doing everything they can to be as prepared as possible, should that be needed - https://www.ryedale.gov.uk/living-here/health-social-care/2533-coronavirus.html
