Speaking to Altrincham Today, local MP Sir Graham Brady said: “I have long been campaigning for a shift towards trusting people to make decisions for themselves and their families.
“I am glad that ‘plan B’ restrictions are now being dropped. It is time for us to use our own judgment and to recognise that COVID is now an endemic virus with which we will have to live.”
Positive Covid-19 tests are falling more rapidly in Altrincham than the Trafford area (-50.6%) and England (-38.9%) as a whole.
