Leeds City Council urges people of Leeds to help city stay out of further restrictions

Leeds City Council has urged the people of Leeds to play their part in keeping the city out of local lockdown restrictions.

Leeds has been named as an area of concern by the Government earlier this month, however  they weren’t subjected to local restrictions in the same ways that cities such as Manchester and Birmingham have been.

Leeds had 32.5 cases per 100,000 when they were added as an area of concern, it is currently at 66 per cases per 100,000 with a 6% test positivity rate.

The Council has introduced further testing across the city and increased monitoring of cases to ensure that the infection rate does not increase further in the coming weeks and months.

 Councillor Judith Blake, Leader of Leeds City Council, said:

“We really need everyone to pull together to help us get these rates down and stem the tide. What we all do now will make a direct impact on whether we’re able to bring this terrible virus back under control.

“It will also directly affect decisions as to whether Leeds is considered as an area that may need further restrictions later this month. If levels continue to go up as they are doing this is a real possibility.”
