The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government has published updated guidance for the safe use of council buildings during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and has called for views on local authority remote meetings. The updated guidance was published following confirmation that emergency legislation regarding virtual council meetings will not be extended. The guidance contains information on face coverings, test and trace, enforcement, waste disposal in non-healthcare settings and guidance specific to council buildings and the spaces within them. Further, a consultation has been launched, seeking to understand local authorities’ experience in the whole of the UK regarding remote meetings. The consultation will close on 17 June 2021.
