Latest Wiltshire COVID-19 cases

The number of cases in Wiltshire continues to be below the national average and has decreased this week.

The rate of cases per 100,000 has gone from 413.2 to 260.6.

Please keep washing your hands regularly or sanitising them, get your first and second dose of the vaccine when offered, and if you have COVID symptoms, please book a test and self-isolate immediately.

Thanks as always for your support.


Measures in place to keep you safe while you vote in the Police and Crime Commissioner Election

Although COVID-19 restrictions have eased nationally, we will still have measures in place to keep you safe when you head to the polls on 19 August.

Voters will be encouraged to wear face masks while inside the polling station, to socially distance from one another, and hand sanitiser will be available. And just like the elections in May, we ask that you bring your own pen to cast your vote, although a small supply will be available for you to use should you forget.
