Local businesses hit by the third phase of national lockdown are being reminded they may be in line for additional government support. The move follows the sweeping restrictions that came into force on Monday, January 4 as part of the ongoing fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
Schools can now access hand sanitiser and soap via Middlesbrough Council. The Council has allocated £50,000 of its Covid funding to provide the products for schools around the town. The cash was committed following conversations with headteachers over issues arising during the pandemic.
Help is always at hand for those in need over the festive break. That's the message to residents across Middlesbrough as one of the toughest years in living memory draws to a close. While Covid-19 restrictions remain in force, a huge range of services are still available for the vulnerable and those in need.
