It’s that time of the week again, so please find attached this week’s workstream update setting out latest Somerset Public Health figures as well as all the great work that’s been happening across our region by Council staff and partners.
We’re glad to report that after having one of the highest R rates in the country a few weeks ago, the South West is now officially the lowest – with a R rate of between 0.6-0.9. However, as lockdown measures continue to ease, we cannot afford to be complacent. Coronavirus is still circulating in our communities. Therefore, we are very grateful for your support in sharing messages which promote residents – and visitors to Somerset – continuing to socially distance, washing their hands frequently, self-isolating if they start to display symptoms and booking a test.
