Yorkshire’s infection rates

Infection rates continue to steadily decrease across Yorkshire as we are about to enter the final days of the second national lockdown.

Most West and South Yorkshire areas have recorded an infection rate of less than 300 while the majority of North Yorkshire’s rates has dropped below 200.

When lockdown ends on December 2, West and South Yorkshire will be placed under Tier 3 restrictions and North Yorkshire will be in Tier 2.

There is speculation however that restrictions could be eased further before Christmas, depending on factors such as infection rates and hospital admissions.
