With cases continuing to rise rapidly across England, the Government has announced new Local COVID alert levels in place. They set out information on what you can and cannot do if you live, work or travel in each local alert level. Hampshire is currently on Tier 1, or medium alert. This means we must all continue to abide by the existing national measures that came into force on 25 September, including the Rule of Six (no large gatherings indoors or outdoors).
Since March, there have been 6,918 positive cases confirmed in our county and 1,074 COVID-19 associated deaths. To help prevent the further spread of the virus and the risk of Hampshire moving into Tier 2, it’s critical everyone also sticks to the basics, which are maintaining good and frequent hand hygiene, wearing a face covering where required, practising social distancing to help keep everyone safe - and getting tested if you have symptoms. We publish Hampshire COVID data weekly on our website.
