Please see below WCC's statement in response to the Government's lockdown exit plan announcement.
Councillor John Smith, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing said:
“The lockdown exit plan announced by Central Government is a really welcome step forward in reducing restrictions, and returning slowly to pre-pandemic life. It’s fantastic that we’re now at a stage that we can slowly begin to plan ahead and start looking forward to reducing restrictions as we head towards the summer. Here in Worcestershire, our local communities have really come together and played their part in keeping case numbers down throughout the pandemic. It is really important that we all continue our good work as the plan is slowly rolled out, as the plan is dependent on us all coming together, following the rules, driving down case numbers and hospital admissions.”
