COVID-19 cases are continuing to rise here – take extra care

Over the last week (week ending 30 May), cases have continued to rise to 123 new cases (42.6 per 100,000) although this is only an increase of 8 cases from the previous week they are still going in the wrong direction so we must not be complacent.

The latest reports show that cases have also risen in Milton Keynes (Luton cases TBC - we will update on our website on Friday). Whilst it is encouraging to see that new cases have dropped in Bedford they are still a concern.

No-one wants to see another outbreak so we all need to play our part in control the spread.

Always remember:

  • Hands – keep washing them regularly or use sanitiser
  • Face – wear a face covering
  • Space – keep 2 metres apart from others
  • Fresh air is best – meet others outdoors or open windows if inside
  • Test regularly – use a rapid test before you meet others
  • Isolate – if you have symptoms get a PCR test immediately and isolate
  • Vaccinate – vaccination is effective so get yours as soon as you can

You can see the latest cases numbers for Bedford and Milton Keynes on our website.

Book the vaccine

The good news is that there is now evidence that the vaccines are effective against the new variant, so it’s even more important that you take up the offer of vaccination when it is available to you.

You may not be concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on yourself, but by getting vaccinated you can play a part in protecting others.

Public Health England (PHE) published its latest report showing that the COVID-19 vaccination programme prevented over 13,000 deaths in those aged 60 and prevented almost 40,000 hospitalisations in those aged 65 and older.

If you are over 30 or otherwise eligible you should book your COVID-19 vaccinations now through either the National Booking System or by calling 119.
