As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds we find ourselves in a fast-moving scenario and I understand that members of the public are concerned on several levels. It is clear that the virus will be with us for some time, but I would like to offer my reassurance that as your Member of Parliament I am working alongside my ministerial colleagues and others who are dedicated to ensuring that the public and the economy is protected.
We all have a part to play in fighting the virus, which means washing our hands and wearing masks. It is also recommended that you use the NHS Track and Trace App which can tell you if you have been in contact with someone else who has had coronavirus. You can download the app here from the Apple Store or here from Google Play.
