A HUGE rise in Covid cases means Oxford is set to move into tier 2 restrictions from Saturday, October 31.
After the city saw the number of cases per 100,000 rise to 134.5 for the week ending October 23, the decision was made following “intensive discussions” between the local authorities and MPs.
The rest of the county will remain in tier 1 as the city in which a coronavirus vaccine is being developed is set to move into tier 2 Covid restrictions.
Ian Hudspeth, leader of Oxfordshire County Council, expressed serious concerns the rest of the Oxfordshire county had not followed suit:
“We are deeply disappointed that despite clear evidence showing the virus is now spreading to older and more vulnerable communities across the county, our request that Oxfordshire as a whole should move to tier 2 was not approved,” he said.
