People living in Middlesbrough are being advised not to visit other households after the Covid-19 infection rate doubled in a week. As of Friday, the town’s rate had risen significantly to more than 80 per 100,000 of the town’s population.
Grants are up for grabs to help community groups boost the local response to Covid-19. And a band of local ‘Covid Community Champions' is leading the charge to ensure much-needed support and information is there for local communities.
Cash support to help small businesses and the self-employed keep themselves and customers safe from Covid-19 is now available. Eligible businesses with up to and including nine employees can apply for grants of up to £100. Firms can make a claim to cover the cost of protective measures such as hand sanitiser, face coverings, screens, chair covers and other such items.
