Following the ending of free Covid testing for most people as part of the Government's 'Living with Covid' plan, from the end of March 2022 the figures showing the number of cases no longer provide an accurate picture of the levels of the virus within our community.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) monitors Covid rates nationally through its Coronavirus Infection Survey.
