Coronavirus restrictions in Ilkley to remain in place


The Government has announced that the restrictions introduced in the Bradford District, including Ilkley and other parts of Northern England will remain in place and be reviews again next week.


It means people in the areas affected cannot meet others in their homes or gardens, or in indoor public venues, unless they are in a support bubble.


The restrictions are remaining in place because the latest data does not show a decrease in the number of coronavirus cases per 100,000 people, the Department of Health said.


Health minister Edward Argar said: "We will review the measures again next week as part of our ongoing surveillance and monitoring of the latest data.


"It is essential we all remain vigilant and I urge everyone in these areas to continue to follow the rules - wash your hands regularly, follow social distancing, get yourself a free test as soon as you get any symptoms, and isolate if NHS Test and Trace tells you to."


Full details of the restrictions are available on the gov.uk website.
