THE latest update for businesses in Eastbourne shows who is contracting the virus.
The report by Your Eastbourne BID says: “Usually spike in Eastbourne due to care home outbreaks or households.
“That has changed and now evidence of community spread – individuals spread out around Eastbourne with age profiles also changing. Mostly 17-30 year age group.”
The report says the key important issue is ‘about emphasising current measures not introducing new ones.’
And the warning is: “We are not on the same rates as those in Northern England. But seeing a steady increase. Do not be complacent.”
Police are working with students at the University of Brighton campus in Eastbourne to enforce rule of 6 people.
Police say: “The Message is getting through.”
