Last updated Apr 16, 2022

The rate of covid in the Harrogate district has halved since the most recent wave of infections peaked on March 25.

Latest figures from North Yorkshire County Council show that 441 per 100,000 people currently have the virus.

The rate has fallen sharply since the end of March when it had risen to 1,005 per 100,000 people.
