COVID-19 Dashboard

We are currently in LOCKDOWN

This page has all the latest information on the situation in the Banbury FM area.   Below the details of the rules for Lockdown you will find the latest graphs showing the infection rates around our area.

We have answered some questions on the information here at the bottom of the page.   If you have a question please email news@banburyfm.com.




These rules apply in Lockdown:

You must stay at home.

Leaving home

You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:

  • shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person
  • go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
  • exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area
  • meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
  • seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
  • attend education or childcare – for those eligible

Colleges, primary and secondary schools will remain open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. All other children will learn remotely until February half term. Early Years settings remain open.

Higher Education provision will remain online until mid February for all except future critical worker courses.

If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local in the village, town, or part of the city where you live. You may leave your local area for a legally permitted reason, such as for work.

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable you should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential. You should not attend work

Meeting others

You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or are not in a support bubble with (if you are legally permitted to form one).

You may exercise on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble.

You should not meet other people you do not live with, or have formed a support bubble with, unless for a permitted reason.

Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household.



COVID-19 infection rates in the Banbury FM area:

This graph shows the infection rates in the Banbury FM area over time.   It includes Banbury and its surrounding villages, Brackley, Kings Sutton, Greatworth, Evenley, Middleton Cheney and Chipping Warden.

This data runs up to 08/01/21.



Infections in your area

The following graphs show the number of COVID-19 infections in each area of North Oxfordshire and neighbouring areas of South Northants over a number of weeks.

Each graph uses the official government data for the total number of infections per week – the number of people with a lab-confirmed positive test result.

The graphs contain the most recent data which includes all cases up to 08/01/21.















Q & A

Your graphs show no infections in an area but the school is closed because the teachers have infections.

The teachers will be recorded in the figures for where they live, not where they work.   The Infections In Your Area graphs are full week data up to the date shown.   Recent infections after this date will not yet be shown but will be added when the full week data is released by the government.

We can’t understand your 7-day figures as some days they are going up and the next they are lower.

The seven day chart shows the number of new infections for the last seven days only.   The window it views moves on each day.   So if 5 people were recorded on day 1, in seven days time that data falls outside the seven day window and therefore it is taken out.   We all hope to see this graph have less entries every day as that means the number of new infections is falling.

The graphs don’t look like things are getting worse, so what’s the problem.

Please remember the graphs show NEW cases.   These are not cumulative graphs.   New cases are not good.   We should aim for no cases.

You are making things look worse by adding several villages together.

The official data is released in electoral wards and that is how we report it.   If you visit the Cherwell District Council website you will see that, for example, Adderbury, Bodicote and Bloxham is one ward.   Conversely Banbury is split into several wards.   This is due in part to the number of people living in an area.

Since when has Brackley been in North Oxfordshire.

It isn’t.   We were asked to add information for the areas in South Northamptonshire that are our nearest neighbours.   People in Middleton Cheeney will probably visit Banbury and interact with the community here.   In broadcast terms Ofcom notes “Banbury and Brackley” as one area.   When we quote Cherwell figures the data from South Northants isn’t included.

Where does this information come from.

We receive the data presented above from the official government daily feed.
