As a result of a new Covid variant that has been identified, at 4am today UK government introduced new rules requiring face masks to be worn in shops, banks, post offices, hairdressers etc (but not hospitality venues). Information about this can be found by clicking here.
We also have posters that you can display in your business, so please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like one of these.
So how are we doing locally? …
Since restrictions were lifted in July we have been closely monitoring local Covid rates. At that time (23rd July) local cases were 585.7 cases per 100,000 people which was comparatively quite high. Since then numbers have fluctuated as follows:
- July 23rd – 585.7 cases per 100,000 people
- August 20th – 283.6 per cases per 100,000 people
- September 24th – 311.2 cases per 100,000 people
- October 22nd – 624.5 cases per 100,000 people
- November 19th – 319.5 cases per 100,000 cases people
- November 26th – 384.4 cases per 100,000 people
These figures are drawn from regular updates we receive from Warwick Drictick Council and can be verified here: https://www.warwickdc.gov.uk/news/archive.
Alongside this, the Local Authority and other organizations have been proactive in encouraging people to get vaccinated and offering associated services. Thanks to the great work of our local health service providers and volunteers several walk-in clinics are available. For example, we can now ‘grab a jab’ this weekend at:
- Warwick – Northgate House
Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 November, 10am-4pm
- Kenilworth – Former Ramada Hotel
Sunday 28 November, 10am-2pm
