Bob said:

“Over 1,000 constituents have contacted me this week alone with coronavirus-related queries. I have therefore prepared a detailed response which should cover almost every issue raised by Islanders.

Bob said the responses would be put on his website shortly at and would be updated and additional topics added as they are asked. He said information and advice would also continue to be posted on his social media platforms as well.
