Wiltshire Council News & COVID-19 Update 9 July


Latest Wiltshire COVID-19 cases

The number of cases in Wiltshire continues to be below the national average but has increased again this week.

The rate of cases per 100,000 has gone from 73 to 143.8.

It’s vital that we all keep following the restrictions that are still in place ahead of any changes on 19 July.

So, please keep washing your hands regularly or sanitising them, wear a face covering where required, socially distance as much as possible,

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 for your support.
