Steve Brown, Devon’s Director of Public Health Devon (Designate) said this week that going into Tier 2 will give the best chance for us to see cases continue to fall.

“When we were in Tier 1, prior to the current national restrictions, we saw continued rising cases,” he said.

“It’s only been recently, as a result of the national lockdown, that we have seen those cases plateau and ultimately start to fall.

“Devon going into Tier 2 is the best chance for us to continue to see those cases fall.”

Mr Brown spoke following the government’s announcement on Thursday, about the new tier structure to be introduced from 2 December, subject to parliamentary approval.

“It’s really important that we adhere to the new rules and regulations,” he said.

“If we let our guard down, cases will start to rise again.

“Even over Christmas, it’s really important that we don’t let our guard down, otherwise I fear there will be a heavy price to pay.”
