Coronavirus

June/July 2020

The Prime Minister has confirmed in a recent announcement that lockdown measures continue to be eased and we will move on to the next stage in the Government’s recovery strategy. It is encouraging to see that we, as a country, are heading in the right direction.

That said, it is important to continue to be responsible. The progress we have made has been hard fought, but the Coronavirus remains a real threat.

On June 23rd the Prime Minister delivered a statement to Parliament, updating MPs on the latest progress on coronavirus. You can find a full transcript of this update by following the link below.

The Government has announced a further easing of the lockdown which will come into effect from July 4th.

I have provided two links below which provide a helpful summary of these measures:

As the Government ease lockdown measures and allow more sectors of our society and economy to begin opening up again- we all have a duty to follow the guidance to help prevent a resurgence in the Coronavirus.

A second peak would result in many preventable deaths and harsher more stringent lockdown measures. The Government has been clear- they will not hesitate to apply the brakes and re-introduce restrictions even at national level - if required.

The Government has also published a comprehensive set of guidelines for businesses to assist them as they re-open their doors. I have included a link to this guidance below in the ‘helpful links’ section. 

During this challenging period, my office and I will continue to offer advice and raise your concerns with the Government.

The impact of the coronavirus outbreak on our everyday lives and the economy has been severe and will be felt for many years to come. I will continue to play my part, as the Member of Parliament for Maidenhead, to help ensure that the UK is able to recover from the coronavirus pandemic, stronger and more united than before.


The Rt Hon Theresa May MP
