The 2020- 2021 Director of Public Heath annual report looks at the impact of Covid-19 on different aspect of life in Cornwall. 

Topics covered in the report include:

  • preventing and managing Covid-19 outbreaks
  • the socio-economic impact of the pandemic and how those factors influenced Covid-19 outcomes
  • community resilience
  • working together.

The local response to the pandemic in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has been remarkable. There has been a shared purpose across the Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to keep each other safe. This willingness to protect each other across our communities has made an impact. The way of working has meant infection and death rates in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly were consistently below the national average.

Individuals, families, communities and businesses have come together to support those in need. A response which is in line with the spirit of Onen hag oll (One and all).

As well as the usual report this year we'd like to hear stories from our residents about how the pandemic has affected us and our communities. The idea is to create a unique ‘time capsule’ of experiences and memories. It will help us remember how our communities adapted to meet the many challenges we have all faced over the past 18 months.
