Coronavirus: The latest developments in Sussex (Wednesday, 13)

Here’s all the coronavirus related news that’s gone on in Sussex over the last 24 hours.

As of Wednesday (May, 13) at 6am, the following figures are the known number of Covid-19 cases in each district:

Brighton and Hove: 399*

East Sussex: 650

West Sussex: 1,230

Total: 2,279

*This number has dropped by one from yesterday’s official figures. This could be because it was recorded incorrectly, or for the wrong area.

Garden centres reopen

Garden centres such as Horsham Water Gardens, Dobbies, Notcutts, Tates of Sussex and Sussex Country Gardener are among sites that will be reopening.

Police asked the public to follow traffic marshalls, avoid long queues, and plan to return at a quieter time if need be.

Dog exclusion zone

Despite unlimited exercise coming into force today, the dog exlusion zone will be going ahead as usual on Worthing Beach.

Adur and Worthing Councils said flags will indicate the restricted area until September 30.

West Wittering

West Wittering Estate said the beach will remain closed, and any reopening will be phased.

Thank you NHS

East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust posted a heartfelt video yesterday to pay tribute to their nurses on International Nurses Day 2020.

Thank you to all the nurses at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust & across the county! 💙💙💙
