As England reaches the end of national lockdown restrictions, Essex will still be under Tier 2 restrictions from today, (Wednesday December 2.)
At 12:01 this morning, England reverted back to three-tier local restrictions to help slow down the rate of infection of Covid-19.
Many places in Essex have seen a spike in the infection rate and confirmed coronavirus cases have significantly risen.
Basildon remains the highest infected district in the county, which has increased weekly. The district even has an infection rate higher than Kent, who have been placed into Tier 3.
However, Maldon, Tendring and Colchester are still the districts with the lowest rate of infection, even being in the lowest 25 areas for infection rates in the country.
Most districts in the county have seen the infection rate go down from the week previous, with 10 out of 14 areas seeing the infection rate drop.
