Cherilyn Mackrory MP statement on unnecessary travel to Cornwall in COVID-19 Pandemic

“The coronavirus pandemic is an unprecedented situation and as a nation we must take the strongest measures to slow its spread and support our NHS.”

“With schools now closed and Easter approaching I have been working with my Cornish MP colleagues to ensure the voice of Cornwall is heard during this crisis.”

“The Government has responded with huge and sweeping changes across our society to help us deal with this outbreak. More announcements will come in the coming days.”

 “The Government’s advice on movement during this time is very clear:”

“Do not travel unnecessarily.”

“Coming on holiday during this time to Cornwall or anywhere else is not necessary travel.”

“My message to anyone considering travelling to Cornwall for a holiday at this time is simple:”

“Do not come.”

“We are always happy to welcome visitors during normal times.”

“But these are not normal times.”

“Please stay away, for your own health’s sake, for our health’s sake, and to keep pressure off the amazing team at RCH Treliske who continue to work for us all in incredibly challenging circumstances.”
