Coronavirus case rates in the far South West are so high the government is prioritising the area for additional support to drive down case numbers. It doesn't mean another local lockdown, but it does mean that local authorities will have more flexibility to introduce additional public health measures if considered necessary. Most coronavirus cases in Devon are among late teens and younger adults. Socialising is seen as the main driver for the rise in case numbers. It's not unexpected, given the removal of restrictions and the opening up of opportunities to mix. Devon is a popular destination and attracts visitors. Devon is already working with their neighbouring authorities and Public Health England, but the enhanced response area designation means that they're now also working with the government to see what else can be done to reduce Devon's coronavirus case rate. They need you to work with them too. Please do your bit by:
