The messaging on staying at home has been largely followed, and in a recent poll on the Northumberland Gazette Facebook page, 85% of readers said they would support the lockdown for “as long as it takes”.

But the coronavirus crisis is all-encompassing, and impacts every part of our daily lives.

With Boris Johnson set to review plans to ease the lockdown, which are expected to be announced on Sunday, we want to hear from you on a number of issues relating to the lockdown and the Covid-19 pandemic, so we are inviting you to take part in this quick survey.
