Look out for each other to reduce the spread of Covid-19.
All adults are being urged to get their first and second doses of a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible to protect themselves and the people around them. Vaccinated people are far less likely to get COVID-19 with symptoms and even more unlikely to get serious cases of COVID-19, be admitted to hospital, or to die from it. There is also growing evidence that they are less likely to pass the virus on to others. People who have been vaccinated with both doses do not have to quarantine on their return to England from an amber list country, providing they received their second jab at least 14 days prior. And from Monday 16 August, double-vaccinated people will also no longer be legally required to self-isolate if they are identified as a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case. Every adult in the UK has been offered a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and are able to get their second doses after eight weeks, which means every adult has the chance to have both doses by mid-September. Vaccines are available free of charge from thousands of vaccine centres, GP practices and pharmacies. Visit the NHS website to book your COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible.

The latest Devon data
shows a sharp increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases in the 0 to 19 year old, and 20 to 39 year old age groups. The transmission, particularly in the younger age groups, is through social interaction and the concern is that people are meeting with friends, possibly not wearing face coverings or regularly washing their hands, or not keeping socially distanced from each other. Remember, this is a young group that has not been vaccinated, and while the vaccine offers protection against becoming seriously ill from having the virus, it also reduces the risk of transmission. We are likely to see case numbers continuing to rise over coming weeks, but we can stop that by all doing our part. Please stay alert and don’t let your guard down. Continue to follow the rules and take up the regular twice-weekly lateral flow testing that is very easily accessible now. Just visit our website at devon.cc/testing to find out more.

As predicted the lifting of restrictions is postponed for four weeks to allow more time to vaccinate everyone over 18.
Check the current rules in your area - and see when things might change.
Our new target date is 19th July. It may be testing our patience but it will be worth the wait.
We may have to wait a bit longer for life to return to normal as the easing of all restrictions in England on 21 June could be delayed. Ministers had been urging caution and many scientists had called for restrictions to remain in place so that more people can be vaccinated as cases of the Delta variant rise. The average number of daily confirmed cases is increasing with the latest figures showing there were 7,490 cases on Sunday. With this in mind, senior ministers are considering signing off a decision to delay lifting all restrictions. Government sources have told us most of the current rules could stay in place for another four weeks.
29th May to 4th June - 63 Confirmed Cases.
