I do hope this welcome reduction will help us avoid being in Tier 3. We will find out tomorrow. For what it is worth, my workplace is rammed with covid patients and has had many staff off sick with the disease.

Today's figures show 169 cases per 100,000 in CE. This is against a national average of 177 cases per 100,000.

Anybody who thinks we won’t be in tier three is deluded. The council are begging to be in tier three so they get more cash to waste on what ever they waste it on.
