Quote of the day 21st September 2020
"Barrow is not yet seeing the level of infection in places like Oldham, but without action this is clearly where we are heading.
"The new local action we are taking is aimed at protecting local people and stopping Barrow having local lockdown measures imposed upon it by Government.
"The advice will be in place for the next 2-weeks, after which it will be reviewed."
(Colin Cox, Cumbria’s Director of Public Health, referring to the measures which come into affect today in the Barrow-in-Furness area)
