Cllr Gareth Roberts, said:
"This is the biggest emergency that our country has ever faced. It is all hands-on deck. The Government has had to make some critical decisions about the way we live in order to prevent the spread of this horrific virus.
"It is on each and every one of us to make sacrifices to ensure that we can limit the number of people who get ill or die. It is simple.
"As a Council we are following the Government’s guidance and instruction on how to restrict our non-essential services and ensure we comply with social distancing. This has resulted in changes to a number of our services.
"We know that people have lots of questions. Whilst I can’t promise to know the answers to all of them – I can try. So, next Tuesday, log onto the Council’s Facebook and I will try to respond to what I do know."
