Waterfront BID Businesses urged to do more to help tackle rise in Covid-19 cases
Waterfront BID businesses have been doing a great job implementing the Covid-19 secure measures within their premises, but we all need to pull together and do more to tackle the rise in cases highlighted by the Plymouth's Director of Public Health today.
• Keep up the good work and continue to monitor covid-safety measures. • Remember hands, face, space • More information will be shared on the situation as it’s available on social media and via our BID newsletter.
Plymouth’s Director of Public Health is calling for a concerted city-wide effort to stop Plymouth becoming a ‘high risk’ area, as COVID-19 cases surge by 350 in a week.
Dr Ruth Harrell is warning that if COVID-19 cases in Plymouth continue to rise at the current rapid rate, within days the city could be designated a ‘high risk’ or tier 2 area, meaning further restrictions for residents and businesses.
Cases are now rising faster in Plymouth than at any other time in the pandemic and there are now 138 cases per 100,000 residents, well above the average for the south west.
