Latest information and advice

In line with the Government's roadmap out of lockdown, we are now on step 4, which includes many legal restrictions being lifted. While cases are high and rising, everybody needs to remain cautious, continue to follow the guidelines, and respect each other.

Importantly, if you test positive for COVID-19 - or are identified as a contact of someone who does via NHS Test & Trace, you are still legally requirement to self-isolate. You should not leave your home even to go work or school.

Staying alert and safe

COVID-19 has not gone away, so it's important to remember the actions you can take to keep yourself and others safe.

The best way to stop the spread of the virus is to follow the guidelines (hands, face, space and fresh air), get vaccinated, and take up the offer of regular testing.  

The requirement to wear face coverings in law has been lifted. However, the Government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.
