Coronavirus outbreak

March 16, 2020

I know many residents will feel some concern given news about the spread of coronavirus. I want all constituents to know that I am here to help in any way I can.

I am already assisting a number of constituents who have got in touch with me regarding aspects of the coronavirus situation, and I invite all York Outer residents to contact me if I can be of any help in answering queries or directing them to the right services.

Government, the NHS and the wider public health system are proceeding with a comprehensive, evidence-led response to the outbreak, and are escalating the official effort in stages in line with the progress of the virus, to ensure maximum effectiveness.

Official measures are closely following expert medical guidance, and are focused on protecting lives, and ensuring medical services have sufficient capacity to deal with cases as they come through.

Above all, this is a time for calm and common sense to see us all through.
