New England-wide lockdown: Statement from leader of Cambridgeshire County Council
It seems strange that my New Year wishes for the people of Cambridgeshire has to come on the back of our Prime Minister’s announcement for a new national lockdown for England last night.
I know the last thing any of us wanted to face in the New Year was another lockdown. However, with this new variant accelerating infection rates nationally, we need to do more and bring this under control to give vaccines time to be rolled out.
The pandemic is relentless and I know we have all had to adapt our way of living, it’s been difficult and that was no different over the festive period - I’m very grateful to those of you who thought very carefully about not mixing with wider groups of family on Christmas Day even though you were allowed to.
