Meeting Attendance

Whilst national Covid-19 restrictions were lifted on 19 July 2021, Torbay Council has taken the decision to continue operating in a Covid-19 secure manner in order to protect staff and visitors entering Council buildings and to help reduce the spread of Covid-19 in Torbay.  This includes social distancing and other protective measures (e.g. wearing a face covering (unless exempt), signing in and using hand sanitiser).  Our public meetings will continue to operate with social distancing measures in place and as such there are limited numbers that can access our meeting rooms.  Also, to help prevent the spread of the virus, anyone attending meetings is asked to take Covid lateral flow test the evening before - if you have a positive test result please follow the Government’s guidelines and do not attend the meeting.
