NB: in consultation with the local authority outbreaks have been reclassified.  The figure above is the number of live outbreaks (i.e. within 10 days of last known positive case)

(Figures updated Monday to Friday)

The figures above take into account an outbreak of 58 cases (1 current and 57 recovered) at The Glassworks accommodation, in Newarke Street. In addition to the positive cases, 14 students are self-isolating. The outbreak is restricted to one block, Block C, and six self-contained flats are affected.

The Glassworks has taken speedy and comprehensive action to contain the outbreak and support the needs of the students affected. DMU, Public Health England East Midlands, Leicester City Council and The Glassworks team are in regular communication and all partners have approved the package of measures in place to deal with the outbreak. The partners are monitoring the situation very closely and actively considering further mitigation if necessary.

Support on offer includes hundreds of deliveries a day being taken up to the affected flats by Glassworks staff, such as food, post, parcels and essentials. A daily rubbish collection from all flats is in place, mental health support has been offered and Glassworks reception staff are on hand to deal with any further requests from the students.
