Although some of their services in Salisbury are having to be slightly altered due to government guidelines.

Salisbury City Council say they are continuing to monitor all government advice with regard to coronavirus and they say it's "business as usual" within the limitations. 

There are a few council owned sites that are being slightly changed though, including: 

  • The Guildhall will close its front door to unrestricted visitors from Thursday (19th March) onwards
  • Shop Mobility will be open for equipment hire by appointment only
  • The Information Centre will close to unrestricted face to face visitors from Thursday
  • The Crematorium is operating as usual with some restriction for services in line with current social distance policies

Most of the changes are being made in order to support the government's measure to promote social distancing.

The Leader of the Council, Cllr Jeremy Nettle, said:

"These are unprecedented times for us locally and nationally.  The City Council is continuing to work to support its local community as much as we can.  Have a look at our website for more Community information and please look after your neighbours and friends, (as I know some of you are) to use a familiar slogan, 'Is your neighbour going to bed hungry?' If we can all care for each other, than we can get through this together."

Yesterday (Tuesday 17th March) they announced a number of events will be cancelled due to the outbreak, including the French Market, Car Boot Sundays and St George's Day.
