Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19 TRESA have decided to postpone their mayoral husting that was scheduled for 18th March 2020.
We recognise that Public Health England have not yet recommended closing schools and public events, but we feel there is enough evidence suggesting effectiveness of “social distancing” for reducing transmission rates. We feel it is irresponsible to gather people for a voluntary event when we know that it could have such a detrimental impact for some.
We understand that the electoral commission has suggested postponement for local elections. We will be following these events and if possible we will aim to schedule a new date when the chance of infection is reduced.
