Residents are invited to watch live on Facebook to hear from panellists including:
- Cllr Keith Aspden, Leader of City of York Council

Residents can interact with the session by either submitting questions in advance by emailing them to YourQuestions@york.gov.uk or commenting on the live video on Facebook where leaders will read out questions and respond. Questions may be answered by theme rather than individually, so that the conversation covers as many topics as possible.
Cllr Keith Aspden, Leader of City of York Council, said:
2020 has been an exceptionally tough year for us all, which is why it is important that we all come together to help each other through these difficult times. We have a panel for this live Q&A session that will help give us information on how to look after our own and others health and wellbeing.
“We will also be answering your questions on the latest information on our response, with schools and the public health measures that have been put into place across the city.”
Cllr Carol Runciman, Executive Member for Health and Adult Social Care, said:
As we once again find ourselves in a national lockdown it is vital that we look out for one another during this extremely difficult time. There are some simple steps that we can all take to help each other, a phone call or a text can make a huge difference to someone’s day.
“It’s important to remember that it’s okay to not be okay during this time and that there is help and support ready and waiting whether your problem is big or small. Residents can comment live on Facebook or submit their questions beforehand to YourQuestions@york.gov.uk.”
