Skegness officials are telling people in Nottinghamshire – ‘Don’t bring viruses to the coast! “


Skegness officials have sent a message to tourists in Nottinghamshire as the neighboring county braces for the lockdown.Cases have risen sharply in Lincolnshire in recent months – but health officials say the county is at no immediate risk of local restrictions.

The same cannot be said for Nottinghamshire.

The weekly rate of new Covid-19 cases in Nottingham continues to be the highest in England – and the rate of new cases has skyrocketed again.

The weekly rate of new Covid-19 cases in the city has climbed even higher and has now exceeded 750 cases per 100,000 residents, according to the latest data released on Friday.

In Nottinghamshire there have also been sharp increases in the Broxtowe, Gedling and Rushcliffe rates.

And with many people in Nottinghamshire regularly visiting the coast, it has prompted officials to give advice to those considering a trip to the seaside town.

David Dodds, Head of Environmental Health at East Lindsey District Council, told Nottinghamshire Live: “We know you love to visit the Lincolnshire coast, we have low levels of covid and want that to continue.

“We will always be here and ready to welcome you, so do your part and stop the spread of the virus. ”

East Lindsey’s coronavirus case rate on Friday was 31.8 per 100,000 people, which is far lower than any part of Nottinghamshire.

There were 45 confirmed cases in the council area in the seven days leading up to October 6.
