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.
