The Chief Operating Officer presented a report which provided an update for June on activities both directly in response to Covid-19 and to support recovery and renewal.
As well as the latest coronavirus figures, the report highlighted the work of the public health function, along with updates on work to improve mental health provision and on re-opening the city centre. A summary of the wider work of the public health team was attached as Annex 1, with a summary of the Northern Quarter mental health project at Annex 2.
On 4 June, the official 7-day rate of Covid cases in York had been 29.4 per 100k population, remaining lower than both national and regional averages. It was reported at the meeting that this had since increased to 100 per 100k. However, due to the impact of the vaccine cases among the over-60s remained very low (12 per 100k) and there were no covid cases in intensive care. By 8 June, 71.1% of the city’s estimated adult population had received their first dose of the vaccine and 48.7% had received both doses.
In commenting on the report, the Chair highlighted the expected changes to government guidance, and the proposals made to government to enable the council to support the city centre and secondary shopping areas in Acombe and Haxby. He also thanked the Covid volunteers for their work during the pandemic.
Resolved: That the contents of the report, and the information provided at the meeting, be noted.
