Covid Update from CAVA
Covid infection rates have, thankfully, been falling in the borough, with only 20 cases per 100,000 people in the past week. The vaccine rollout programme has been progressing well and over 90% of the over-60s have had their first dose, and many have also had their second dose. Anyone over the age of 45 can now book their first vaccine online. For details please click here.

Around one in three people who test positive for Covid do not have any symptoms, and could be spreading the virus without realising. So it’s important to get tested regularly. Free covid tests are available to all adults via a number of routes, including community testing sites and home delivery.
