Protecting the community and busineses:
Enfield Council is working with Enfield Voluntary Action to mobilise the community to help protect the borough's most vulnerable residents - you can volunteer to help, register for help if you are isolated, and find out more about our efforts here.
If you can, please help others in your community - check on any vulnerable family, friends and neighbours and to see if they need anything from the shops, a prescription collected or help with other small jobs. Sometimes just a small favour can make a big difference.
Finally, please be responsible with your comments and actions in your community and social media, so as not to cause undue concern or anxiety.
You can find out the latest news and updates about the action we are taking on coronavirus, by signing up to our digital newsletters here.
We are working with our businesses to support them through this period and lobbying the government on their behalf. To enable us to understand all of the issues businesses are facing as a result of coronavirus - we are urging them to fill in our on-line form.
