The case figures are slightly up on the 22 recorded the day before.
The seven-day number of people testing positive for Coronavirus has continued to fall. 232 people tested positive which cover the seven-day period up to November 20 with a rolling rate of 196.9 per 100,000 people. This is down by 23. This figure shows the number of people with at least one positive COVID-19 test result in the rolling seven day period ending on the dates shown.
It is expected the government will announce which tier Gedling borough will fall into later today.
The borough, along with Nottinghamshire, had been in tier 3, but council leaders are calling for the government to take our falling figures into account when making the decision.
The new tier structure introduces tougher restrictions, with pubs now closed all together in tier 3 when previously they were allowed to offer alcohol with ‘substantial meals to customers.’
