What are the differences between the Covid-19 tests?
Brighton & Hove Covid-19 Escalation Framework
Public Health have introduced a new escalation framework, using a traffic light system – from green to yellow, amber and red - to keep everyone in the city up to date about the current rate of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Brighton & Hove and how they can help to prevent the spread of infection.
Starting this week the city’s status will be updated weekly on a new Current Alert Level and Guidance web page.
We will also highlight groups and settings that are particularly affected so people can make extra efforts to reduce their risk.
I’m asking everyone to play their part and follow the guidance. To slow the virus we all need to step up physical distancing, wear face coverings where advised, limit contact between households and follow the ‘rule of six’ and also think ‘hands, space, face’ . Businesses also have a vital role to play by ensuring they are helping their customers to stay safe.
