Covid 19 Corona Virus

Statement from the Gwent Local Resilience Forum

The Gwent Local Resilience Forum (GLRF) is working in support of a larger UK Government, Welsh Government and NHS strategy in response to Covid-19.

Covid-19 has been declared a pandemic and has triggered Major Incident arrangements locally.

To coordinate the response, the GLRF is meeting regularly and has set up multi-agency reporting structures. Several work groups are working towards agreed local objectives, to:

  • Support the NHS and wider Health system
  • Minimise the spread of the virus
  • Protect our most vulnerable residents
  • Maintain essential local public services

For national updates on the COVID-19 visit www.gov.uk/coronavirus or to find out what to do if you think you have symptoms, please visit www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk

For local updates, please visit the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) website and social media channels (ABUHB is the NHS organisation in our area).

The GLRF will share regular updates on the impact to local services and will only signpost to only trusted sources of information.

Thank you for your support
