πŸŽ₯ Coronavirus Urgent Questions

Jason asked the Health Secretary what advice can be given to Colne Valley constituents on upcoming events.

Jason McCartney MP

I thank my right hon. Friend and his team for the way in which they are being guided by the science and medical advice. My constituents in the Colne and Holme valleys, and Lindley, are keen to do the right thing and to do their very best to contain the outbreak.

What specific advice would the Health Secretary give my constituents who are organising community events over the Easter period and over the May Day weekend, particularly events that will have large attendances from those who are most at riskβ€”the elderly?

Matt Hancock MP

We are not currently advising the cancellation of mass events, but we are considering closely providing further advice and strengthening advice to those in the vulnerable and elderly groups.
