The incidence rate of Covid-19 has been on the rise in Norwich, and this is obviously a concern to many of my constituents. I’m joining with other community leaders in Norwich to urge everyone, across all ages and areas, to continue working together to curb this rise.
I know the Government has failed to provide consistent advice and support – but we still need to do as much as possible to keep ourselves and each other safe. This means:
Continuing to social distance
Isolating at home if you have symptoms, only leaving to get a test
Washing your hands regularly
Wearing a face covering when required
Following the rule of six

While the seven day incidence rate for Norwich remains below the national average, it is now among the highest in the region. The majority of cases are in the University, Nelson and Eaton areas of the city, though there is concern about wider transmission across all of our communities.
This week, I have had meetings with the University of East Anglia’s Vice Chancellor, representatives from the Student Union and UCU branch members to discuss the Covid-19 situation from their perspective. I will provide an update from these meetings in a separate post shortly – so watch this space.
