Conservative MP, Amanda Solloway, has closed her constituency office in response to coronavirus outbreak.
The MP for Derby North has said that her staff will be taking the Prime Minister’s advice for staff to work from home and avoid unnecessary social contact.
The Prime Minister on Monday said that everyone would work from home where possible, and should avoid going to pubs, restaurants and theatres.
Solloway has said that despite the closure of the office, she and her team will continue to work tirelessly for her constituents despite the closure and the ongoing health crisis.
Planned surgeries will go ahead but will be conducted over the phone.
Commenting, Solloway said:
“We all need to play our part to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and keep our friends and families safe.
I would encourage everybody to take on the Prime Minister’s advice and self-isolate if and when necessary.
Just because my constituency office has closed, this does not mean that I will not stop working for my constituents in Parliament. Nor does it mean that I will not be accessible to my constituents.
As always, if anybody needs help with any issue or has any questions, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone my office at 020 7219 6089.”
