The current COVID infection rate has increased dramatically to 216 per 100,000.

Middlesbrough Council, the NHS, and CVFM Radio are encouraging people to remember the basics of social distancing and wearing face coverings when required.

Anyone with symptoms should book a test by calling 119 or by visiting www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
