The council aims to work with partners in finding housing solutions with minimum disruption. Marion Fitzgerald, Executive member for policy, governance and people resources, said: "It is crucial that we work in partnership with our local housing providers, private sector housing providers and key agencies to ensure that we can support vulnerable people, and to ensure that they are safe, and can, if needed, self-isolate."
