Layla Moran MP has responded to leading Lib Dem and Green councillors on the Vale of White Horse and South Oxfordshire District Councils calling on the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to move Oxfordshire to Tier 2 status.
Layla said: “This is a pivotal moment for Oxfordshire in this crisis. Our Director of Public Health and councils are doing exactly the right thing by wanting to take brisk, firm action now to stop a much bigger spike in coronavirus cases over the half-term break and beyond. We must follow the advice of the experts including the Director of Public Health.
“As Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Coronavirus, what I've been hearing over and over again in our evidence sessions is that it’s crucial to get ahead the virus in our public health response. We must come together as a community. Only if we all take action and listen to the experts can we beat this virus and protect our friends, family, and neighbours.”
