Thank you for all you are doing to keep yourself and your family and friends safe during this pandemic. The COVID-19 case numbers in Elmbridge while fluctuating, are still high.
- When Elmbridge entered Tier 2 on 17 October, the 7-day case rate was 105.3 per 100,000, with the 14-day case rate being 244.2 per 100,000.
- On 9 November the case rate fell to 104.5 per 100,000 over 7 days and 207.6 per 100,000 over 14 days.
- But, we have also seen times when the case rate has spiked, for example: 122.1 per 100,000 over 7 days and 268.3 per 100,000 on 26 October.
We must remember that overall the COVID-19 case rate remains at a high level in England. It is also worth recognising that Public Health England also considers factors such as test and trace data, case numbers in certain age groups, as well as hospital admissions when it determines the impact of COVID-19 on an area.
We have read about advances with a possible COVID-19 vaccine and while that may have raised our spirits, we need to be patient, not drop our guard and continue to follow COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines. We have all made sacrifices during this pandemic and there will be a time when COVID-19 does not impact on our daily lives but in the meantime please remember: hands, face, space.

Geographical allocation of positive cases
In a statement on 16 November, Public Health England confirms they have updated the way they record the location of people who test positive for coronavirus to prioritise addresses given at point of testing, rather than details registered on the NHS database. This better reflects the distribution of positive cases in recent weeks and months, particularly among younger people of university age who may not have yet registered with a GP at their term-time address.
