Coronavirus cases in Buckinghamshire are slowing rising with the latest figures for the county at around 16 cases per 100,000 people.

The picture isn’t consistent across the county and in the past week cases have risen more quickly in South Buckinghamshire and in the Wycombe area, where both currently stand at around 25 cases per 100,000 people. While our numbers are much lower than in some other parts of the UK, it is still concerning that the numbers are rising and it is therefore critical that everyone does their bit to stop the virus spreading further.

So please remember to:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and regularly
  • Wear a face covering to protect yourself and others, unless you’re exempt
  • Keep a 2m distance at all times from anyone you don’t live with or who isn’t in a support bubble with you
  • If you or someone you live with develops coronavirus symptoms, isolate immediately, which means staying at home
  • Try to book a coronavirus test for anyone in the home who has symptoms
  • If you meet up with others, follow the ‘rule of six’ and keep a distance at all times from anyone you don’t live with

Work from home if you’re able to
