The future after Coronavirus

Things have changed suddenly and dramatically because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

People have lost their lives and their livelihoods.

Lockdown has put a huge strain on people and businesses here in Cornwall, and reinforced many pre-existing inequalities. The effects will be felt for a long time to come.

Amidst the uncertainty, the response from local residents has been incredible. Thank you to the key workers who have kept essential services going, and the volunteers who have helped support people in the community.

But, as well as the challenges, many people have commented on positives they have taken from lockdown, such as spending more time with their children or shopping locally.

I'd like to hear your concerns and priorities as we look to the future. Please let me know your views:
