The latest UK coronavirus dashboard figures as of Monday morning showed 370 new cases in Lincolnshire, 91 in North Lincolnshire and 152 in North East Lincolnshire.

It brings the cumulative total to 9,491 since the start of the pandemic. In total, 4,899 of those cases have been in October.

Nationally, cases increased to 873,800, while deaths jumped to 44,896.

Lincolnshire is currently still on the medium (tier 1) level for the the new three-tier lockdown system of COVID-19 risk, which means it has no extra restrictions on top of the nation-wide ones.

However, neighbouring South Yorkshire moved into tier 3 at the weekend, and Nottingham is in discussions to do the same this week.
