The UK government is now publishing more detailed information showing a breakdown of COVID-19 cases at a local level.
From Thursday 16 July, weekly mapping that shows the distribution of confirmed cases of COVID-19 within individual Upper Tear Local Authority (UTLA) areas can be viewed online.
As of Thursday 16 July, the total number of confirmed cases in Rutland is 92. There have been 23 COVID-19 related deaths recorded in Rutland up to week ending 3 July 2020.
“Although we are continuing to see a comparatively low number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Rutland, we need to remain cautious and continue to follow the guidance that has helped people to stay safe. This is important advice for everyone, including younger people, as we head into the summer holiday period. We must all continue to take care of ourselves and each other.”
Councillor Oliver Hemsley, Leader of Rutland County Council
The UK government’s mapping of weekly cases of COVID-19 in England divides Rutland into five geographical areas:
- Oakham East
- Oakham West, Langham and Whissendine
- Uppingham, Lyddington and Braunston
- Ketton, Ryhall and Luffenham
- Market Overton, Cottesmore and Empingham
Based on the latest available data (6 to 12 July), there are currently fewer than three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in each of these five areas. This is shown on the map’s key as ‘Data Suppressed’ because the numbers are so low.
