Face coverings in shops

Face coverings required in shops from tomorrow

Whether you're off out to do a big shop or just a quick trip for the essentials, from tomorrow you MUST wear a face covering, if you can, in supermarkets and other shops.

A face covering can be a scarf, bandana or you can buy one or make your own. When wearing a face covering ensure it covers both your nose and mouth to effectively control the spread of coronavirus. 

Please remember that people with a disability, breathing difficulties like asthma, and children under 11 do not have to wear a face covering. Find out more about exemptions here.

Don't forget to wear your face covering when travelling on public transport!

Make your own face covering                                  

Figures on Covid-19 cases in local areas published

Coronavirus Report

Like all local authorities, we have now published our first weekly Covid-19 Surveillance Report. The report brings together information on the number of infections following tests. The figures show that the rate of confirmed new cases across Notts is lower than the England average and has continued to fall.

The report shows the figures at county, district and neighbourhood level so that you can see where the cases are. The figures will help us work with partners to respond to outbreaks and to suppress the spread of infection.

Click here and go to ‘View local data’ to see the report.

Our financial challenges

Financial challenge

Major financial challenges are facing all councils in light of COVID-19.

We are currently looking into options of how to balance the budget as we face an estimated funding gap of more than £50 million over three years.

We have a legal and moral duty to protect critical services such as children’s social care, support for vulnerable young and older people and maintaining the county’s roads, but we think it is important to continue to provide ALL current services where we can because they are important to the people of Nottinghamshire.
