Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Find out what we are doing to prevent and respond to COVID-19 in Torbay.

The page is to inform residents, communities, employers and businesses in Torbay about the local response to COVID-19 and to signpost useful advice, guidance and resources.

We are working with all partners across the Bay to protect and support our community through the pandemic. 

We are currently following national restrictions

We must remain vigilant and comply with restrictions. Meet outdoors, let fresh air in, get tested when needed and get vaccinated when offered.

As we move through each phase in the roadmap, we must all remember COVID-19 remains a part of our lives. We are going to have to keep living our lives differently to keep ourselves and others safe.

We must carry on with ‘hands, face, space’. Comply with the COVID-19 measures that remain in place. Meet outdoors when we can and keep letting fresh air in. Get tested when needed. Get vaccinated when offered. If we all continue to play our part, we will be that bit closer to a future that is more familiar.

Approximately 1 in 3 people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and could be spreading it without realising it. Remember - ‘Hands. Face. Space.’

  • Hands

    Wash your hands regularly and for at least 20 seconds.

  • Face

    Wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

  • Space

    Stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings).

Latest video Update 06 April 2021

In his latest video, our director of public health, Dr Lincoln Sargeant talks about how our schools have safely re-opened with no increase in cases and, as we look forward to enjoying new freedoms, we all need to act responsibly. If we bend the rules cases will go up again.
