The coronavirus outbreak is the biggest public health emergency in a generation. The Government has been clear that our number one priority is to protect life, and that our decisions will be based on the best available science. The coronavirus demands dramatic action and we are working tirelessly, in partnership with local councils, businesses, charities and other organisations, to ensure that people have the support that they need.
Please be assured that I will be continuing to work hard both locally and in Parliament to do everything I possibly can to protect and support people, particularly those who are most vulnerable and at risk. I would also strongly urge everyone to follow the advice issued by Government as we all have a vital part to play in battling the coronavirus.
This is of course a very concerning time and there are still many unanswered questions. The situation is however moving extremely quickly and there have been significant developments. New measures and updated guidance will continue to be issued in the coming days and weeks. I have dedicated a page on my website where you can find the latest information: https://www.helenwhately.org.uk/coronavirus-advice. I have also included a number of links below that provide up-to-date information.
