Coronavirus (Covid-19) - advice and information

From 27 January, face coverings will no longer be mandatory in any setting.  Despite this, health experts and scientists recommend they are still worn in crowded or indoor spaces and on public transport.  This is particularly important if you will be in contact with people you do not usually meet.

From 27 January, it will no longer be a legal requirement to show your NHS Covid pass at venues or events but bear in mind that a pass may still be a condition of entry.

The same applies to face coverings which may be required before you can travel on some buses and trains.

The work from home guidance has ended.  You should talk to your employer about the arrangements to allow you to return to the office.

If you have to self-isolate because of Covid-19 this can end at the start of day six provided you take lateral flow tests on days five and six, both results are negative and you do not have a temperature.

Please make sure you take up the offer of a Covid-19 booster vaccination as soon as you are eligible. Information about the booster and eligibility can be found on the NHS website.
