Rise in Covid-19 less severe than in big citiesThe number of new cases of Covid-19 is rising in Kirklees, but nowhere as severely as in Yorkshire's biggest cities.
In terms of proportion of the population, some 1.8% have tested positive in Kirklees since March, which is much closer to the 1.6% of population seen in Calderdale and Wakefield districts than in Leeds and Bradford where the figures have been shooting up in the last couple of weeks, to 2.2% in the case of Leeds and 2.8% in Bradford.
Three of the four South Yorkshire districts, Barnsley, Rotherham and Sheffield are also above the 2.0% of population mark, in Sheffield's case up to 2.4%. Doncaster, on the other hand, has a lower figure of 1.6%.
Kirklees continues to have level 2 High tier restrictions, but two of Kirklees' seven neighbouring districts will be elevated to the level 3 Very High tier restrictions in the next few days. Oldham in Greater Manchester, which includes the villages of the Saddleworth area, will be on the Very High tier from Friday, while Barnsley district, in South Yorkshire, will be on the Very High tier from Saturday.
As well as measures including pubs being shut unless they are serving a substantial meal, the tier 3 restictions come with travel advice to avoid entering a Very High alert level area other than for things like work, education or youth services, to meet caring responsibilities or if you are travelling through as part of a longer journey.
Our four West Yorkshire neighbours, Calderdale, Bradford, Leeds and Wakefield remain on the level 2 High restrictions where it is advised you can continue to travel to venues or amenities that are open, for work or to access education, but should look to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible.
If heading over Holme Moss for a day in the Peak District, our other neighbour is the High Peak district of Derbyshire where some council wards are in the level 1 Medium tier, where Government travel advice is to walk or cycle where possible, or plan ahead and avoid busy times and routes on public transport, while some council wards are on the level 2 High restrictions.
