Coronavirus update - 10th March

I recently attended a briefing with the Chief Medical Officer and have raised various issues regarding the Coronavirus in Parliament. I also spoke to the director of Public Health at Barnsley Council and will continue to be in close contact with them and Barnsley Hospital.

Following the confirmation of positive cases of Covid-19 in Barnsley, I would like to send my best wishes to the individuals and their family. Public Health England are monitoring the situation.

The risk of infection is still low. But following simple advice like washing hands regularly and contacting 111 if you feel unwell can help protect you and your family. Click here for advice on how to avoid the virus.
