Director of Public Health to host Facebook Live event

Cumbria’s Director of Public Health Colin Cox will host his third COVID-19 Facebook Live event today December, 15.

The event is an opportunity for the public to hear the latest update on the COVID-19 response in Cumbria and ask questions.

People can watch and participate by visiting www.facebook.com/cumbriacc from 7.30pm. 

Around 400 people have joined the each of the last two live events, asking a very wide range of questions.

Mr Cox said: “There is an awful lot going on at the moment with the start of the vaccination programme, the upcoming review of Tiers, plans for mass testing in schools and Christmas just round the corner. So I’m sure people will have lots of questions.

“I don’t always have all the answers, but if there are things I don’t know we always try to get back to people over email. It’s quite tricky trying to respond to all the questions that come in, but I really value the opportunity to talk to people directly about what is going on.”

People do not need a Facebook account to watch the event, but do need one if they wish to ask a question.
