It’s Tier 2 for B&NES.
Meanwhile the Royal United Hospital has suspended visiting with immediate effect.
Here’s what Trust members were told:
‘Just to flag to you in order to protect our patients, visitors and staff, and in line with government advice<https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/full-guidance-on-staying-at-home-and-away-from-others/>, visiting is suspended with immediate effect and until further notice. More information can be found here: https://www.ruh.nhs.uk/patients/services/wards/visiting.asp‘
I am told the hospital is NOT overwhelmed but there has been an increase in cases and this is seen as a precautionary measure to protect services.
Finally, the word is – on the vaccine front – that Ashton Gate in Bristol and Bath Racecourse are being considered as centres for the vaccination effort when it arrives.
