• 3 at Lincolnshire Community Health Service hospitals (no change)

• 1 at Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust (no change)

• 100 in Northern Lincolnshire (NLAG) (up from 97)

• 69 in Lincolnshire County Council-managed care homes (up from 62)

Lincolnshire Resilience Forum deputy chairman Mark Baxter revealed earlier today that the R-rate for infection Lincolnshire currently sits between 0.7-1, adding it was at the lower end of the scale and below the national level.
