Coronavirus update

In these unprecedented times, we would like to reassure you that we are working with our NHS partners to take all and any action we can to help local people and businesses.

The council provides a huge range of services that people need every day. To help keep everyone healthy, we are reviewing how we deliver our services and are making changes where needed.

We have cancelled council events. More of our employees will be working from home. Non-essential travel from Oban Airport has been stopped with seats on flights only for islanders and essential lifeline services. Wherever possible, we will be working with people and businesses by phone rather than face-to-face.

In line with national guidance, our schools remain open at this stage.

We will continue to work with our partners and follow national guidance.

We will update you on changes to services as they arise, and will continue to share information that may be of use to you, on our social media and digital channels.
