Following yesterday’s announcement from the NI Executive regarding a localised lockdown across parts of Northern Ireland which include Crumlin, Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has put in place a number of measures to support both residents and businesses across the affected area. 

To support and reassure leisure users, a temperature camera is being installed in Crumlin Leisure Centre as well as additional hand sanitising units. Staff will also be located at key points in the building to ensure that social distancing is complied with.

The Council’s Environmental Health Team has also been on the ground, visiting businesses in the Crumlin area to provide advice and guidance in relation to social distancing and safe operating procedures, with 30 visits completed to date. Additional cleans are also scheduled to take place across the town of Crumlin to support the health and safety message.  


Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Jim Montgomery said

“The health and safety of our residents is paramount at this time and the extra measures we are implementing across the Crumlin area will hopefully mitigate any risk of the virus spreading further. I would urge all residents in the areas affected to follow the guidance from the NI Executive which includes households not mixing with other households. It is important that everyone remains vigilant at this time as we all play a part in the ongoing fight against COVID19.”
