Portsmouth MP Stephen Morgan urges caution as Covid-19 restrictions ease
AMID the excitement of reopenings as Covid-19 restrictions are eased, we cannot lose sight of the progress we have made to keep one another safe.
That is the message from Portsmouth South MP Stephen Morgan who has reminded people to be careful as they flock to pubs, restaurants and entertainment facilities.
The Labour MP said: ‘I know from my discussions with our city’s hospitality sector and small businesses how prepared they are for reopening safely as restrictions ease.
‘Restaurants, bars and cultural attractions are the life and soul of Portsmouth and after such a difficult year, they deserve our support.
‘We know from past experience how quickly a highly transmissible variant grows. The emergence of the Indian variant is a stark reminder of the need to ease from lockdown with care.
‘As we unlock I urge everyone to continue to follow the rules, self-isolate if needed and get the vaccine when you can.’
