Request for Stockport to be brought out of local Coronavirus restrictions

Stockport's coronavirus infection rates have been falling in recent weeks.

The Council is requesting, on behalf of the residents of Stockport, that government consider the lifting of local restrictions in our borough, when the decision is reviewed later this week.

Stockport's coronavirus infection rates have been falling in recent weeks. That is testament to the hard work of our residents following the introduction of the additional restrictions brought in across Greater Manchester and other parts of the north of England.

However, we are all still living with covid and will continue to for the foreseeable future. People should continue to be responsible and safe whilst out and about and to continue to apply social distancing, wear face coverings and to sanitise (or wash hands) regularly.
