Leader of the Council, Cllr Alan McClafferty, said: "SHBC staff are working as hard as they can to help limit the spread of this virus and are doing everything possible to keep priority services running.  

 

“We are working in partnership with key organisations including Public Health England, Surrey County Council and neighbouring borough and district councils to share information and coordinate activities. 

 

“We will continue to adjust our plans in response to this fast-developing situation and will update residents regularly as more information emerges.

 

"I'd like to pay tribute to the many public sector workers who are going above and beyond to keep our local and wider community running in these difficult times.

 

"The response from the Surrey Heath community in setting up volunteer networks has been phenomenal and we are very grateful to everyone who is helping to organise this. 

 

"We are working with those organising such schemes, particularly the main hub at High Cross Church in Camberley, and will release more information soon on the role and abilities of these networks going forward."
