A council spokesman said: “We welcome the allocation of additional resources to help manage our response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We will be producing a Local Outbreak Management Plan by the end of June which will set out how the council will work with local communities and partner organisations to identify issues and respond quickly to limit onward transmission of the virus.
“Everyone is encouraged to stay vigilant and to keep following guidance around topics like social distancing, good hygiene and reporting for a test and self-isolating if they experience any symptoms of the virus.
