Ten help hubs have been set up across north Norfolk to organise the response to the coronavirus pandemic.
North Norfolk District Council has set up the centres - which are not open to the public - to co-ordinate council staff and community volunteer groups who are helping residents.
Sarah Butikofer, council leader, said it particularly wanted to help older and vulnerable residents who have been asked to self-isolate.
Mrs Butikofer said: “We recognise that many older people and people with underlying health conditions will be worried at this time and, working with a wide range of partners and harnessing the capacity of the huge number of individuals who have stepped forward and volunteered to support their local communities, we believe we have put in place a response model which will reassure people that we can meet their need for non-emergency support quickly.”
Mrs Butikofer added that the council staff had been working with north Norfolk GPs and pharmacies to make sure that people could get prescriptions delivered.
