Your April 2021 newsletter from Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service
April 2021 news bulletin
Welcome to the latest GMCA newsletter - where we bring you updates from Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) in a bid to keep the people of Greater Manchester informed and ensure they are receiving all of the right advice and guidance in relation to COVID-19.
We always appreciate feedback, so if you have any suggestions about what you'd like to see in this newsletter, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the national lockdown is now over, it’s still so important we all play our part in stopping the spread of coronavirus and keeping each other safe.
Please follow the national guidance, including only meeting with other people outdoors and in groups of six or with one other household.
You can read the full guidance on the Government website.
Thank you for doing your bit to help bring the number of COVID-19 cases down across the city-region, and please do continue to keep yourself and others safe.
Find out more on our website and from your local council about how you can help.
Need urgent care? You are encouraged to dial 111 whenever possible rather than heading straight to your local A&E department.
