The Harrogate district has recorded its highest daily covid cases since March.
According to today’s Public Health England figures, 15 cases have tested positive.
It’s the highest daily infections since March 21, when 15 were also reported.
The figure takes the total number of infections since the start of the pandemic to 7,805.
The daily number of cases reported is now based on PCR and lateral flow tests returning positive results.

Meanwhile, the district’s seven-day rate currently stands at 23 per 100,000 people.
