In the coming weeks, you will notice that it’s much quieter than usual on this blog. It’s because between midnight on Friday, 21 April and the general election on 8 June is the pre-election period.
This means that we only communicate essential information, in line with the general election guidance for civil servants. This applies to @aphagovuk on Twitter, to this blog, and to other APHA and Government Veterinary Service blogs and social media channels.
While we’re on the subject of elections, don’t forget to register to vote. You can do it online and the deadline is 22 May. It takes about 5 minutes to register.
In the meantime, take a look at our Happy Birthday to APHA science blog for a review of the blogs over the last year. Here's your chance to catch up.
