Coronavirus Information

COVID-2019

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 a number of 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 is protected.

As with any major incident, a lot of false information about this virus is being shared online - it is very important that you make sure that the information you use comes from a trusted source - all of the information on this page has been sourced from the NHS, Public Health England and the official UK Government website.

Information about coronavirus - COVID-19

Coronaviruses are a ‘type’ of virus. The coronavirus we are all hearing about is called COVID-19, but you may also hear it called - coronavirus.
