Covid-19 cases in Dorset falling and below average

Public Health Dorset report that infection rates in Dorset have fallen steeply from a peak in early January. This is a similar picture to the national trend and case rates in Dorset are now below the average rates for England and the South West. Infection rates remain high and there are still thousands of people catching COVID-19 across Dorset each week. We’ve also seen a reduction in the number of people in hospital in Dorset with COVID-19 and the number of deaths related to the virus remains relatively stable.

Prime Minister’s announcement: Easing of Plan B measures

This week the Prime Minister announced the easing of ‘Plan B’ coronavirus measures. People will no longer be advised to work from home, face coverings will no longer be mandatory in indoor venues, and organisations will be able to choose whether to require NHS COVID Passes

Whilst the current trends in data are positive, cases remain high with lots of people in Dorset still catching COVID-19 every day. It’s important to remember that we’re still living with COVID-19 – the virus hasn’t gone away.

Health and care services are still extremely busy so we need to do all we can to protect essential frontline services, as well as our friends and loved ones. Keep testing regularly, wearing a face covering in crowded indoor spaces, getting plenty of fresh air and self-isolating if you have symptoms.
