NEWS ROUNDUP: Leeds City Council COVID-19 meeting
Leeds City Council has held a coronavirus briefing, one year on since the start of the first COVID-19 lockdown.
It’s been confirmed that 255,000 people in Leeds have had the vaccine so far, with the seven day infection rate in the city just above 100 per 100,000 people, which is lower than the regional average. Leeds City Council’s Chief Executive Tom Riordan has said the council is working closely with the hospitality industry, with outdoor hospitality set to reopen in April, indoor hospitality in May and then a full reopening in June.
Staff at York Railway Station joined the nation in a minute’s silence at noon to mark the National Day of Reflection and to remember those who have lost their lives during the Covid-19 pandemic.
