Dear Iain 

COVID-19 infection survey publication time 

Following conversations with your team, I am happy to confirm the one-off exemption from your usual publication time for COVID-19 Infection Survey statistics of noon on a Friday, to 10:30am on Thursday 26 November.  

I very much welcome your commitment to review your publication schedule to enable you to respond swiftly to emerging policy decisions around COVID-19.  

Yours sincerely  


Ed Humpherson
