Nottinghamshire remains under Tier 3: Very High Alert restrictions

Today, the Government announced its decision to keep the whole of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire in the highest COVID-19 alert.

Jonathan Gribbin, Director of Public Health for Nottinghamshire said: “We recognise the sacrifices Nottinghamshire residents have made throughout a very difficult year to help drive down the rate of infection across the county and I appreciate that the continuation of Tier 3 measures will be a disappointment to many who were hoping for an easing of the restrictions.

“I would like to thank those who have stuck to the very difficult restrictions placed on them. Their diligence and perseverance have helped reduce rates which has kept more people safe from COVID-19. However, the rate of infection remains a concern, especially among people over 60, and our hospitals are still experiencing high levels of admissions of people very poorly with COVID-19.”

Further review is due to take place on Wednesday 30 December.

Stay safe over the festive period – a message from Jonathan Gribbin

A message from JG

This week the Government asked everyone to exercise additional care when forming bubbles.

Christmas bubbles apply between 23-27 December. How each one of us sticks to the guidance during the Christmas Bubble window will make a significant difference to the overall rate of infection in the days and weeks to come.

Listen to Jonathan Gribbin, Director of Public Health for Nottinghamshire talk about the importance of taking personal responsibility this Christmas to limit the spread of the virus and protect our loved ones, particularly if they are vulnerable.
