A further 175 new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed on Teesside.
Stockton recorded the biggest increase, with 73.
In Middlesbrough there were a further 35 recorded cases, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there were 22.
The latest figures came just before the four-week national lockdown is set to be lifted today.
Teesside has now entered the Tier 3 'Very High' category of local lockdown.
It's been announced that a new purpose built Covid-19 testing site will be opening in Guisborough next week.
The testing centre will open in Belmont House car park, Guisborough on Monday, and will be open from 8.00am to 8.00pm, seven days a week and add even more testing capability in Redcar and Cleveland following the opening of the new testing facility at the Inspire 2 Learn car park, South Bank on the 23rd November.
The testing site will be a walk-in test site only and will be available for people who have Coronavirus symptoms and have booked in advance.
The existing mobile testing centre at Kirkleatham, near Redcar, will continue to operate several days a week and is available as a ‘drive-through’ test centre - again for people who have symptoms and have booked.
Police are appealing after a dog was killed in Dormanstown.
The incident happened between 2pm and 2:15pm on Sunday on South Avenue as a woman walked her Jack Russell.
Another dog, which was reportedly not on a lead at the time, attacked the Jack Russell.
The dog is described as similar to a Labrador or Retriever, and it was with a female who had blonde hair and another woman with dark hair who had an Alsatian type dog with her.
The Jack Russell suffered injuries and sadly later died.
Anyone with information regarding the incident, or the owner of the Labrador/Retriever type dog, is asked to contact PC Wayne Pursley on the non-emergency number 101.
