What do local COVID alert levels mean?

Local COVID alert levels set out information for local authorities, residents and workers about what to do and how to manage the outbreak in their area.

It lets you know what you can and cannot do if you live, work or travel in each local COVID alert level.

There are now three local COVID alert levels: medium, high and very high.

You can find out the alert level of your local area by entering your postcode on the Government’s website. Sedgemoor in Somerset is at ‘medium’ alert.

The Government website has an interactive map of the UK to show what rules apply where.

The Somerset Dashboard  tracks the local epidemic from the start in March, to the current time.

A number of events continue to run in Somerset and the Somerset County Council Public Health team is working closely with district councils and the police to support event organisers to manage these safely, where they go ahead. Some events have been asked to reinforce their COVID-19 secure compliance in order to go ahead, while some organisers have taken the decision to cancel or postpone planned events. Public Health will continue to monitor local levels of COVID-19 infection rates to inform decision making on allowing events to go ahead. Where necessary it will use the Director of Public Health’s legal powers to prevent events proceeding if there is believed to be an imminent threat to public health.
