COVID-19 - Statement from Colin Cox

Colin Cox, Cumbria County Council’s Director of Public Health, said:

“Following the announcements relating to Manchester and its surrounding areas it is sadly very clear that coronavirus is still circulating and being passed on. It is essential that we all recognise that the risk has not gone away and that we must all remain vigilant and follow all the latest guidance regarding hygiene and social distancing

For Cumbria I want to reassure residents that based on our most recent data I would describe our situation as stable.  The latest figures in relation to Carlisle and Eden are encouraging but we must remain cautious and aware of the impact that our behaviour has on this situation.

Our multi-agency Health Protection Board is closely monitoring the situation across the county and will act accordingly to any rises or concerns. However I cannot stress strongly enough that we can only maintain this position if people help us control any further infection outbreak by following the rules”
