Covid 19 Plan B

COVID-19 case rates in Devon remain higher than the national average. The highest rates are among primary and secondary school aged children, followed by those aged 40 to 59 and 20 to 39 years old. We're also starting to see small increases in cases among the over 80s. The most recent data shows that the COVID-19 Omicron variant is spreading rapidly, with analysis suggesting cases are doubling every two and a half to three days. This week the Prime Minister confirmed that England will move to Plan B, to try to slow the spread while more data is assessed on how severe this variant is and how effective the vaccine is against it. These temporary measures include:

  • from Friday 10 December, face coverings must be worn in most public indoor venues, such as cinemas, theatres and places of worship, unless you're exempt.
  • from Monday 13 December, those who can, are advised to work from home
  • from Wednesday 15 December, and subject to parliamentary approval, the NHS COVID Pass will be required to enter certain venues and events where large crowds gather, such as nightclubs and stadiums. This is to check that all visitors aged 18 years old or over are fully vaccinated or have proof of a negative test in the last 48 hours, or have an exemption.
    The government will continue to look closely at all the emerging data but vaccines remain the best line of defence against the virus, so if you have not yet received the COVID-19 vaccine, you should get vaccinated as soon as possible.
