With the national lockdown restrictions now in their second week, plans for people without coronavirus symptoms to be able to get tests progressing and positive news about a vaccine, we caught up with Sefton Director of Public Health Margaret Jones again for an update.

We asked her about what we should and shouldn’t do under the national restrictions, what will happen after they come to an end on 2nd December and her advice for those people considered clinically vulnerable.

Margaret also gave an update on the planned new testing programme and the need to get a test if we have coronavirus symptoms of a raised temperature a persistent new cough or a loss of taste or smell.

She also told us about the vaccine and the importance of us all taking it when it is available.
