COVID-19 weekly surveillance update


New local restrictions to control the spread of coronavirus will come into effect from next Wednesday (December 2).

The government has announced that East Sussex will be in Tier 2. This is for areas with a higher or rapidly rising level of infections, and some additional restrictions will need to be in place. For a full breakdown, see: GOV.UK – Local restriction tiers.

The Weekly Surveillance Update collates published national data to describe COVID-19 cases in East Sussex, how they change over time, and how this compares to other areas.

These pages set out a summary of the current position for East Sussex and for the District and Borough areas together with key messages from Darrell, Gale, Director of Public Health.

The more facts and figures section covers a snapshot of the local data up to October 2020. It is updated quarterly and provides a contextual overview. The next update for this report is due in Spring.
