Covid-19 advice and information

The government has updated the Covid-19 Response Plan - Living with Covid-19 which is the government's plan for removing the remaining legal restrictions while protecting people most vulnerable to Covid-19 and other respiratory illnesses.

We advise you to continue to follow safer behaviours to protect yourself and others:

  • get vaccinated and get your booster dose
  • wear a face covering in crowded indoor public places and on public transport
  • let fresh air in if you meet indoors, meeting outdoors is safer
  • get tested and self-isolate if required

Following the latest government guidance will help you to understand situations where there is a greater risk of catching or spreading infection and the steps that you can take to stay safe and protect others. Every action you can take to help reduce the spread will help reduce pressure on the NHS.
