A number of businesses and schools around the North East have confirmed coronavirus cases as infections appear to rise among younger people

Rising infections rates of coronavirus around the North East has led to a plea to stop the virus spreading out of control.

A number of businesses had to close and schoolchildren sent home after a series of positive cases around the region.

Up to 300 people who attended a charity football match on 30 August at a working men’s club on the border of Sunderland and Durham, are being asked to self-isolate for 14 days from the date of the event.

This comes after 28 people who attended the event at the Burnside working men’s club tested positive for Covid.

We have live coverage of the national picture here and an update from North East councils who have united behind a shared message here.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock warned the Government was ready to impose local lockdowns where coronavirus cases are rising, as he said that a second peak of the virus was coming.

But he came under fire from South Shields MP Emma Lewell-Buck, who said her constituency was heading for “a potential lockdown that will irrevocably devastate us”.

The MP, whose seat is in the South Tyneside local authority area, spoke in the House of Commons following a spike in coronavirus cases across the North East.

Latest NHS figures show that Sunderland is the local authority with the 10th highest rate in the country, with 53.7 cases per 100,000 people, and South Tyneside is 12th on the list, with 48.6 cases per 100,000. Gateshead is 14th, with 46.4 cases per 100,000.

NHS England reported on Tuesday that eight more people who tested positive for Covid-19 have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 29,619.

Of those deaths, one occurred in the North East and Yorkshire NHS region, which was reported by the County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust.

People in Gateshead say they would go “stir crazy” if the area was placed on local lockdown, following the news that the town has the highest infection rate in the North East.

On Monday, it was announced there had been a 241% rise in the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Gateshead in the last seven days.

People on Gateshead High Street said the town ‘can’t afford’ to enter into lockdown, over fears it could cause further confusion around Government guidance and pose a detrimental impact on the local economy.

A staff member at a North Tyneside school has been diagnosed with Covid-19 however students are not at risk, bosses have said.

David Watson, headteacher at St Thomas More RC Academy in North Shields, has confirmed that one member of staff tested positive for coronavirus over the weekend. It is understood the virus was contracted outside school.

Mr Watson said the academy was not fully open last week and classes were gradually being brought back after the summer holidays.

The staff member who tested positive had not taught any lessons and had minimal contact with students.

A number of schools in the North East have been affected by coronavirus just days after reopening following the summer holidays.

In some schools, children in particular classes have been asked to self-isolate following a positive Covid-19 test, while other schools decided to temporarily close for a deep clean.

Headteachers are making decisions based on official advice from the Government. This advice is clear that the school must take “swift action” when they become aware that someone who has attended has tested positive for coronavirus.

The first thing they are told to do is contact the local health protection team,

This team will also contact schools directly if they become aware that someone who has tested positive attended the school – as identified by NHS Test and Trace.

Official Government advice says: “The health protection team will carry out a rapid risk assessment to confirm who has been in close contact with the person during the period that they were infectious, and ensure they are asked to self-isolate.

“The health protection team will work with schools in this situation to guide them through the actions they need to take.

“Based on the advice from the health protection team, schools must send home those people who have been in close contact with the person who has tested positive, advising them to self-isolate for 14 days since they were last in close contact with that person when they were infectious.”

Doors to some of Newcastle’s most hidden attractions will open from Friday with the annual Heritage Open Days event being intent on going ahead despite Covid-19 restrictions.

Some of those doors might be opening only virtually but there are other venues in and around the city which are determined to invite in visitors to enjoy a real experience.

Heritage Open Days offers an opportunity each year for people to see inside historic landmarks for free and enjoy the likes of tours and special events.

And regulars love the opportunity to see places usually closed to the public or which might otherwise charge an entrance fee.

The first day of school can be daunting for a number of reasons without throwing a pandemic into the mix.

So schools across the country have been putting time and effort in making classrooms safe as they welcome back pupils.

Kenton School is no exception and gave ChronicleLive a tour as they added the finishing touches before 1,800 children enter the doors on Wednesday.

The Newcastle academy has completely changed the way they operate with pupils now mainly staying put and teachers being the ones to move between classrooms.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock warned the Government was ready to impose local lockdowns where coronavirus cases are rising, as he said that a second peak of the virus was coming.

But he came under fire from South Shields MP Emma Lewell-Buck, who said her constituency was heading for “a potential lockdown that will irrevocably devastate us”.

The MP, whose seat is in the South Tyneside local authority area, spoke in the House of Commons following a spike in coronavirus cases across the North East.

Latest NHS figures show that Sunderland is the local authority with the 10th highest rate in the country, with 53.7 cases per 100,000 people, and South Tyneside is 12th on the list, with 48.6 cases per 100,000. Gateshead is 14th, with 46.4 cases per 100,000.

These are the rolling seven-day rate of new Covid-19 cases for local authorities across the North East.

The figures show the rate of infection per 100,000 people with the number of cases in brackets.

The rates and cases for the seven days to September 4 are displayed on the left with the same data for the week to August 28 on the right:

NHS England reported on Tuesday that eight more people who tested positive for Covid-19 have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 29,619.

Of those deaths, one occurred in the North East and Yorkshire NHS region, which was reported by the County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust.

Gateshead’s director of public health warned that local restrictions could be put in place if coronavirus cases keep increasing in the borough.

This comes after figures published on Monday revealed the number of cases tripled in Gateshead over seven days – an increase of 241% with 45.4 cases per 100,000 people.

A statistic that placed Gateshead as 10th in country for the number of new coronavirus cases.

Alice Wiseman, director of public health at the council, said: “If we continue on the sort of trajectory we are on at the moment we are very likely to see some sort of local restrictions.

“We have had a three fold increase in cases over the last week we cannot continue to increase at that rate.”

A staff member at a North Tyneside school has been diagnosed with Covid-19 however students are not at risk, bosses have said.

David Watson, headteacher at St Thomas More RC Academy in North Shields, has confirmed that one member of staff tested positive for coronavirus over the weekend. It is understood the virus was contracted outside school.

NHS England has reported that eight more people have died in hospital after testing positive for Covid-19.

The popular annual pantomime at The Playhouse in Whitley Bay is the latest festive show to fall victim to the pandemic.

Following in the footsteps of theatres big and small, the venue announced the cancellation of its traditional panto on Monday.

In a statement it thanked supporters and said: “We are sad to announce that this year’s highly anticipated Christmas panto has now been postponed.”

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves had been due to run at the theatre from December 5 until January 4, 2021.

Gary Telfer, the show’s producer and managing director at Blue Genie Entertainment, said that several possible alternative options had been considered over recent months before the decision was reached “with huge sadness” due to ongoing restrictions and uncertainty about the months ahead.

The number of new coronavirus cases across the North East has surged within the past week.

But in Sunderland 300 people were told to self-isolate following a charity football match this weekend.

And NHS data has identified Gateshead as having the 10th highest number of cases in the country with 45.4 cases per 100,000 people.

Is now the right time to put in place local lockdowns as we’ve seen in parts of Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Leicester?

There has been no change to the list of schools experiencing full or partial closures due to reported cases of Covid-19 in Sunderland.

In the instance of a pupil or staff member testing positive for Covid-19, all advice will continue to be given to schools directly from the Health Protection Team, who are responsible for managing reported cases of coronavirus and providing support and guidance to schools.

In Sunderland, the infection rate is more times four times the level it was a week ago with an increase of 364%.

In Northumberland cases have increased by 135%, though the number of cases per 100,000 remains low, while cases in Newcastle are up 123%, North Tyneside has seen a 132% increase while County Durham has seen a 70% increase in the number of cases.

South Tyneside has seen a 19% increase but it has one of the highest number of cases in the region with 42.6 cases per 100,000 people.

A car manufacturer has confirmed a member of staff at its Sunderland plant has tested positive for coronavirus.

Nissan said the team member is now recovering at home and a further two members of staff are isolating at home.

The firm, which employs around 6,000 people, said the safety of staff was top priority and continued to follow public health guidelines.

A soft play has announced it will temporarily shut after a customer tested positive for Covid-19.

The venue, in Darlington, will close today for a deep clean. Management said that is “purely precautionary”.

And on Facebook the venue revealed that a male customer who attended the 10am session on Friday had tested positive.

“We have also asked all staff on shift on Friday morning to take two weeks off or get a test before returning to work. None of our staff are showing any symptoms whatsoever,” added the post.

As North East leaders express their concerns over a worrying spike in Covid-19 cases in the region, fears of a local lockdown continue to grow.

Gateshead now has the highest rate of infection in the region, with 45.4 cases per 100,000 people – with the borough’s number of cases tripling in a week.

South Tyneside was added to Public Health England’s watchlist late last week, with council officials there warning that the area faced a local lockdown if case numbers did not come down.

The infection rate in Sunderland is more than four times the level it was a week ago, and it has more than doubled in Newcastle, North Tyneside, and Northumberland.

England’s chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty echoed concerns raised by his deputy Jonathan Van-Tam about a rise in cases.

He wrote on Twitter: “We have, through the extraordinary efforts of the whole population, got Covid rates right down.
