Posted on: 12 June 2020

Devon certainly knows how to pull together. Throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic local public sector organisations and partners have worked quickly to ensure the county’s residents, communities and businesses are well informed, supported, and protected.

Here are some of the things we have done as a Local Resilience Forum during the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown:Team Devon info graphic

“The number of cases of COVID-19 in Devon remains one of the lowest in the country, and that’s thanks to the actions of all our residents who, in the vast majority, have respected the lockdown restrictions throughout the pandemic.

“This has clearly been a very tough time for lots of people, particularly the most vulnerable who have been shielding at home, and for our local businesses who have suffered tremendously.

“I would like to thank everyone for being so responsible and sensible so far and urge you all to keep it up so that we can now move forwards together safely.

“From local authorities and health services to businesses and community organisations, we’ve all worked well together to help manage the situation and support each other and our residents in exceptional circumstances.

“As we move slowly into this next phase, with restrictions starting to ease further and plans being made for how Devon will recover from the lockdown, we must continue to collaborate and build on the effort everyone has made so far to keep ourselves and others safe and well.”
