Corona virus advice and guidance

England is moving to Plan B in response to the risks of the Omicron variant.

  • Wear a face covering in most indoor public places and on public transport
  • Get tested and self-isolate if required
  • Work from home, if you can
  • Get vaccinated
  • Let fresh air in if you meet indoors. Meeting outdoors is safer

You are asked not to attend a GP surgery, hospital or pharmacy and instead, use the 111 service; both online and via telephone. There are guidelines to help prevent the spread of the virus, including social distancing and frequent thorough hand washing.

With many people self-isolating, other issues for concern may well arise, particularly in the vulnerable and/or isolated members of our communities. Loneliness and lack of interaction can have a negative effect on our mental health and wellbeing. Please remember to check on others by phone, social media, email, skype etc. Also encourage them, if they are online, to link in with support groups, interest groups and forums where they can continue to enjoy the conversation with others.
