Derbyshire Dales to remain in Covid Tier 3

The whole of Derbyshire, including the Dales, will remain in the highest Covid Tier level (3) the Government announced on 16 December.

Tiers will be reviewed every 14 days.

It's a regional approach and Government is asking us all to work together to get the virus under control.

The Government says it has put Derby and Derbyshire into Tier 3 from 16 December primarily based on 5 key epidemiological indicators:
  • case detection rates in all age groups
  • case detection rates in the over-60s
  • the rate at which cases are rising or falling
  • positivity rate (the number of positive cases detected as a percentage of tests taken)
  • pressure on the NHS, including current and projected occupancy
The indicators are designed to provide a full picture of what is happening with the virus in any area so that suitable action can be taken.
The whole of Derbyshire, including the Dales, has been put in the highest Covid Tier level (3) by the Government from 2 December.
