The number of reported Coronavirus cases in our area has remained static since yesterday, according to official figures.
According to the latest figures published yesterday by Public Health England, there have now been 330 confirmed Coronavirus cases in Redcar and Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people.
That figure has not shown any increase since yesterday.
There are currently 582 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, that's another increase, up from 566 cases yesterday.
Police are reminding people that lockdown regulations have not been lifted and that people need to abide by the regulations in order to keep others safe.
On Monday afternoon, officers attended Millbrook Avenue in the Brambles Farm area of Middlesbrough, whereby it was reported that around 20-25 people were in the street having a party.
Two men aged 20 were arrested on suspicion of public order offences and a number of people were issued with warnings for breaching COVID-19 regulations. Both men were taken into police custody.
Officers are again reminding members of the public that they can only undertake essential journeys and that people need to stay at home in order to protect others and protect the NHS.
It's been announced that the Dunsdale Household Waste and Recycling Centre will be reopening.
The facility will reopen this Thursday, the 7th of May, with strict rules in place to ensure the health and safety of public and staff working at the centre.
The facility will only be accepting rubbish from Redcar and Cleveland residents to try and give them the best possible service and so the centre does not become overwhelmed.
Anyone using the facility must bring proof of address with them which may include driving licences, council tax bills or utility bills, and they must be hard copies only.
The recycling centre will be open between 7am and 6pm seven days a week and the site will close periodically throughout the day to allow for cleaning and disinfection due to Covid-19.
