Latest information and advice

Coronavirus remains a serious health risk and everybody needs to remain cautious to help protect themselves and others. Please continue to follow the guidelines, and respect each other.

From 16 August, people fully vaccinated or under 18 no longer need to self-isolate after close contact with someone who has COVID-19. You’ll still need to take a PCR test and self-isolate if it’s positive, or if you have symptoms.

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.
