Coronavirus staff update - 1 April 2020

Update on praise for council staff.

Swansea Council staff have been praised for saving lives and keeping the city running during the Coronavirus crisis.

The council has responded to the crisis by transforming the way it works to meet the changing needs of the public who include thousands of vulnerable people told to stay at home by the Government for the next 12 weeks.

Rob Stewart, Leader of the Council, said: "I cannot speak highly enough of their commitment and willingness to adapt to a situation that is changing by the day. I am immensely proud of their response and I would like each and every one." 

Many critical services like refuse, social services, home care and emergency home repairs are carrying on in the face of huge pressures, while hundreds of other staff are switching from their usual roles to provide support to local communities and the vulnerable.
