Coronavirus - Closure of council buildings and cancellation of events in response to coronavirus

Many Sandwell Council buildings are closed and events are cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Public spaces such as local parks and Sandwell Valley are open to the public but members of the public are reminded to ensure they follow government guidelines on social distancing.

Council buildings and local neighbourhood offices are closed.
