Liverpool’s Public Health bosses are welcoming the news that the city is seeing a drop in Covid-19 cases, but are urging residents not to get complacent.

Figures released today show that the total number of confirmed cases in the city in the last seven days is 2,044 – which is a decrease of 739 on the previous week. However, the rate remains high at 410.4 per 100,000 population.

Praise is also being given to covid-safe businesses after latest reports show that following 996 unannounced visits by the city council’s licensing team - during the period of 14-24 October - 99% of the businesses were found to be compliant.

The team inspected pubs, bars, restaurants, cafes and takeaways across the city and found that the vast majority were abiding by the government guidelines and measures were in place to protect customers and staff.

Five premises were not compliant and were issued with a Fixed Penalty Notices, the majority for breaching the 10pm curfew.

The inspections will continue over the coming weeks.

Public health officials are encouraged by all the figures and are asking people to continue to follow the guidance so that we can keep on seeing the number of cases decline.

Advice is also being reinforced around Halloween activities ahead of the weekend. People from the same household can take spooky walks to go pumpkin spotting around their neighbourhoods, but in line with Tier 3 restrictions, trick or treating unfortunately cannot take place.

If anyone has concerns a venue is not covid safe, they can fill in the online form.
