Derbyshire County Council’s Weekly Covid-19 Surveillance Report records the rates for each area over the period of February 13 to February 19.

Ahead of the easing of lockdown – beginning with reopening of schools to all pupils on Monday, March 8 – public health officials are urging people to continue following the rules.

Dean Wallace, Derbyshire’s director of public health, said: “Following Government rules and guidelines is making a real difference and it’s so important we all carry on doing all we can.

“That means abiding by the national lockdown and following the basics that we are more than familiar with now – hands, face, space.

“I’d also encourage people to go and get tested at the community testing facilities that are now open around the county so that people who have the virus but are not showing any symptoms can isolate if they test positive, and help to stop the spread."
