Staffordshire is currently at the Medium Alert on the Government’s new Local Covid-19 Alert Levels that includes Medium, High and Very High.
However, cases are still rising fast and we need to do everything we can to bring them down, protect the vulnerable and keep East Staffordshire open for business.
In our four areas of interest in Burton, cases are rising less steeply since we introduced our advice for people to limit meetings with other households indoors. We therefore plan to extend this advice for the whole of East Staffordshire, because it appears to have worked. Otherwise the borough remains under the laws that apply at Medium Alert.
