Data on tests, cases, healthcare and deaths are published daily at 4pm. Positive cases and deaths are at upper tier local authority level.

Record level test and case data (including sex, age, occupation and postcode) is available to all upper tier local authorities who sign data sharing agreements. All now have access.

We are continuing to improve our regular publishing of localised COVID-19 data.
