The county, now classed as a Tier 2 area, avoided the highest category of new Covid restrictions - but tougher restrictions could be only weeks away.

Ahead of the new measures coming into force on Wednesday October 14, we take a look at the latest rolling data released by Public Health England revealing the areas of Preston with the most new cases of Covid-19.

The Public Health England (PHE) data taken from the Gov.uk website includes lab confirmed positive cases of Covid-19 reported by October 10, 2020 with a specimen date up to October 8, 2020.

These are all the areas of Preston with new confirmed Covid-19 cases for the first four recorded days of Week 41 up to October 8 (the rolling seven day total will also include cases from the previous week), from lowest to highest case numbers.

You can see how Week 41 in Preston compares to Week 40 so far here.
