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:
Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
Get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and stay at home if positive
What has changed
Spring COVID-19 booster , this guidance applies to ENGLAND
Care home residents, people aged 75 and over and those with a weakened immune system aged 12 and over will be invited to get a spring COVID-19 booster. The NHS will contact you and invite you to book your spring booster when it’s due.
The government has published its plan for living with COVID-19.
This means from 24 February:
- You will no longer be legally required to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19. New guidance will advise people who test positive to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
- You will no longer be legally required to self-isolate if you are an unvaccinated close contact, and will no longer be advised to test for 7 days if you are a fully vaccinated close contact. New guidance will set out precautions for reducing risk to yourself and others.
