There has been a slight increase in cases of COVID19 we have now increased positivity to 0.7 (in early May this had dropped to 0.3). Largely this is in the younger age range, with some transmission in schools. On the whole this is not translating into Hospitalisations. There has been some targeted vaccinations in Nuneaton where the increased has been greater, and there is mass testing taking place. It is encouraged that people should test reasonably frequently, especially if they are mixing.
