Get Government help if you are vulnerable
If you have received a text/ letter from the NHS that you are in the “extremely vulnerable” group, or if you are vulnerable, please register to receive government support services.
What you should do
The City of London Corporation is dedicated to ensuring that we protect the most vulnerable, support our residents and continue to provide key services during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The latest Government instruction is to stay at home and:
Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
Stay two metres (six feet) away from other people
Wash your hands as soon as you get home
Some non-essential services may need to be closed or operate at reduced levels to support social distancing for staff and service users.
Some people may need extra support at this time, and we are actively encouraging good neighbourliness and support through established local community groups.
Washing your hands is one of the easiest ways to protect yourself and others from the virus. The NHS provides guidance on hand-washing.

Our Council Tax bills have just arrived in the last few days, so if anyone is worried about their ability to pay on-time the website says the following:
"If you are unable to pay a council tax bill or an instalment by the due date stated on your bill, please let us know and provide details of your circumstances. We will do what we can to help you through this difficult time.
Further information about claiming benefits and council tax reduction scheme discount are available from the City's benefits service."
I hope the above helps, particularly anyone who is not already being supported by the resident groups which have responded with offers of help for those in need.
