Stone urges Sutherland constituents – spread the word and not the virus
Far North MP Jamie Stone has urged his constituents to stay at home in the wake of the Prime Minister's lockdown move last night.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a nationwide lockdown in a bid to halt the spread of coronavirus.
Mr Stone, representative for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross said “The Prime Minister and First Minister have told us loud and clear – this lockdown is not mere advice, it is an instruction.
"For now, the message could not be clearer - we must stay at home to save lives.
"Spread the word, not the virus".
Mr Stone said his staff are now working from home rather than his constituency office at Tain and office at Westminster.
But he implored constituents to contact him with any questions or concerns.
He said: ""How my office will operate from now on will change again. We will all be working from home, so we will have to review how best to contact us. For now, my advice is to email me at email@example.com"
