It is also calling for clear criteria about which restrictions or Tier Alert Levels will apply, and for the Government to build upon successful local contact tracing efforts.
The LGA are calling on the Government to provide ‘the necessary powers and resources’, for councils to continue to lead local efforts to tackle outbreaks swiftly and effectively, keep services running and support communities and businesses.
