Information, support and guidance about the ongoing covid-19 pandemic

Supporting you through Covid-19

Current guidance

The government is removing remaining domestic restrictions in England. There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:

  • Get vaccinated

  • Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside

  • Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces

For further information on coronavirus and current restrictions, visit the Government website.



The shielding programme has now ended in England. This means that people who were previously considered clinically extremely vulnerable will not be advised to shield in the future or follow specific national guidance.


What can you do to reduce the spread

We all have a part to play to help tackle the virus.

Using simple steps we can reduce our risk of infection and help protect ourselves, our families and our communities.

Hands - Wash your hands

We can all help combat the virus by washing our hands thoroughly and regularly for at least 20 seconds.

If this is not available, use hand sanitiser.

Face - Wear a face covering where applicable

In England, face coverings are no longer required by law.

The government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet.

Face coverings and dementia

Fresh air - if you're meeting people, stay outside

When a person infected with COVID-19 coughs, talks or breathes, they release droplets and aerosols which can be breathed in by another person. While larger droplets fall quickly to the ground, smaller droplets and aerosols containing the virus that causes COVID-19 can remain suspended in the air for some time indoors, especially if there is no ventilation.

NHS Test and Trace

Test and Trace and the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme in England has now closed.
