Local Area COVID Alert Level Confusion
Published on Thursday, 15th October 2020
There has been some confusion about what our Local Area COVID Alert is. North Warwickshire's level is currently 'Medium'.
Use the FULL postcode search on GOV.UK to find out your local alert level and see the restrictions that apply to you here: https://www.gov.uk/find-coronavirus-local-restrictions
The Test and Trace App gives your area a risk based on the first part of your postcode which can be incorrect. B78 (Polesworth), for example, is a Birmingham postcode so you’re given the same risk rating as Birmingham which is currently ‘High’ but as B78 is in North Warwickshire, the correct risk rating is ‘Medium’.
