Weekly Derbyshire COVID-19 tracking report

The weekly Derbyshire COVID-19 surveillance report will no longer be published.

On 21 February 2022, government published its living with COVID strategy. This outlines how the government plan to live with and manage the COVID-19 virus. Following its publication there have been a number of changes to the COVID-19 guidance in England, this includes (but not limited to): 

  • people by law no longer have to self-isolate if testing positive
  • staff and students are no longer being advised to do twice-weekly lateral flow tests
  • from 24 February 2022 routine contact tracing came to an end
  • from 1 April 2022 free universal testing for people with or without symptoms will end and be targeted more towards vulnerable groups

It is likely these changes will have an impact on how people test and report their test results, which affects the data we receive and report on. It means that the data we report is unlikely to be an accurate reflection of the current situation. For this reason, we have decided to stop the publication of this weekly surveillance report.

An alternative surveillance source is the Office for National Statistic (ONS) Infection Survey. This uses data from a randomly selected cohort across England and is likely to provide a more accurate view of the current situation. The report provides England and regional estimates on the percentage and number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 each week. View the COVID-19 weekly reports.
