Coronavirus Advice

 

Many people are concerned over Coronavirus and what it means for them, their families and communities. This page has been designed to provide up-to-date information, guidance and advice, including:

 

People have also contacted me about the implications for them or their loved ones and I am raising issues for people living in Runnymede and Weybridge directly with the Government where further information or advice is needed.

I will continue to engage at all levels to support residents and businesses, and will put out announcements shortly regarding how you can help locally by volunteering and how to get in contact if you need help. Regular updates will also be published on this site.

We are all in this together and must fight this together in all our communities and as a nation.  We need to support our key workers on the front line, but everyone’s role is key to fight Coronavirus.

Best wishes,

Dr Ben Spencer MP
