Gedling Borough Council‘s Neighbourhood Wardens will be rotating their usual day-to-day roles with new Covid Marshal duties.
The marshals will be working across the boroughs high streets, parks and open spaces and will be on hand to support residents with enquires and concerns they may have.
Marshals will also be monitoring businesses to ensure track and trace QR codes are in place where applicable and that appropriate social distancing and health and safety regulations are being followed.
