Report of Deputy Chief Executive and City Treasurer

 

In light of the current national and international public health emergency situation, Manchester and Greater Manchester (GM) declared a major incident on Friday 20 March 2020.  This activated the multi agency response arrangements in line with the GM generic response plan and the pandemic flu plan.  The Prime Minister’s unprecedented announcement at 8.30pm on Monday 23 March set out the seriousness of the situation and the expectations of all residents, businesses and public services.  Reports to the Executive on 6 May and 3 June 2020 set out in detail the Council’s response to this crisis.  Over recent days and weeks, the lockdown guidance has eased and a number of further specific guidance notes have been received which are informing our actions and response. 

 

This note is intended to provide Scrutiny with a brief summary of the current situation in the city in relation to COVID-19 and an update on the work progressing in Manchester in relation to areas within the remit of this committee.  Further detail on specific issues will be available as required.
