Report a breach of coronavirus (Covid-19) rules

We all have our part to play in reducing the risk of coronavirus spreading through our communities. You can help keep your local community safe by letting us know if you have noticed something that goes against current public health guidance. 

Report a breach

If you are concerned that someone has significantly breached the restrictions, you should report it to Essex Police.  

Only report something if you think there is a serious breach of the rules like a large gathering of people obviously from lots of different households.  

If you are unable to use the online form, call 101. Call 999 if there is an immediate or perceived threat to life, risk of serious damage to property or a serious offence is taking place. 

If a business is breaching restrictions 

If you have concerns that a business is not following government regulations, contact licensing.team@colchester.gov.uk and food.team@colchester.gov.uk 

You can also report the breach to Trading Standards
