The council’s director of adults, health and customer services John Skidmore said the authority would follow government guidelines to help protect residents and staff.

Mr Skidmore said:

“We will of course work to prioritise those services which are vital for our residents throughout this period.

I would like to stress that, where our facilities are remaining open, we will be operating stringent cleaning procedures and of course ensuring that customers are able to wash their hands regularly and maintain a sensible distance.

Libraries and customer service centres will stay open but visitors have been advised to take precautions.”

Sewerby Hall’s grounds and open spaces is set to stay open, but the house, zoo and cafe will be closed.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition and Bridlington’s Artwaves Festival 2020 have been cancelled.

Bridlington Farmers’ Markets have also been called off.
