As part of its promised review of Coronavirus restrictions in England, the UK Government has announced that Calderdale will remain in Tier 3 restrictions until the next review date (expected to be in 2 week’s time).
Calderdale Council’s Response:
We know that this will be disappointing for residents and businesses, especially so close to Christmas. Unfortunately Calderdale’s infection rate is still too high – eight times higher than it was at the end of August, but it is continuing to come down, and we thank everyone in Calderdale for your help with this.
Let’s focus on a brighter 2021 with hope and determination. We’ve come a long way since March and we’ve achieved so much. The continued success of our local test and trace service, community testing, the rollout of the vaccine, and major projects to boost our economy give us plenty to be optimistic about.
Most of all, let’s keep sticking together with the kindness and compassion that have made us all so proud in 2020, and which got us through the most difficult times.
