Volunteers, we thank you!
Thousands of people across the county have provided an invaluable contribution to the emergency services and public services response during an unprecedented and challenging time. Public sector organisations across Dorset are paying tribute to all volunteers who have given their time and expertise for free during the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance
Public services across Dorset are working together to keep the public safe and informed during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Our ask to all residents, businesses and students in Dorset is to ‘do your bit’ and stay alert to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
COVID-19 and Public Event Planning
To ensure events are able to go ahead safely and in accordance with what is permitted at each step of the COVID-19 Roadmap, specific risk assessments must be carried out if you are organising a public event. Risk assessments will need to be submitted to your Local Authority's Safety Advisory Group (SAG), along with the normal event management documents. For further information, please visit your respective local authority's website and search 'event planning'.

COVID-19 Vaccine Text Scam Alert
We have been alerted by different sources, to a scam that is now in wider circulation, that starts with a text and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the vaccine. Users are then invited to click on the link in the text message, are taken to a web page and are then asked for some personal information. Recipients are advised to report this to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040
