Meeting Barnsley Council's Director of Public Health

I met with Barnsley Council’s Director of Public Health, Julia Burrows, to discuss the COVID-19 situation in Barnsley.

Our infection rate remains higher than other areas, but there are a number of factors causing this, including a greater number of people who can’t work from home and much higher testing rates in schools.

It is encouraging that our local vaccine rollout is going well. Hospitalisations and deaths are continuing to fall, reducing pressure on our NHS.
