Be careful: a new COVID-19 variant is spreading in some parts of England.

Posted on May 21st, 2021

Given the increased risk of transmitting COVID-19, particular caution should be taken when meeting anyone outside your household or support bubble; wherever possible:

  • Meet outside rather than inside
  • Try to keep 2 metres apart from people, including family and friends that you don’t live with (unless in your support bubble)
  • Get tested twice a week for free and isolate if you are positive
  • Continue to work from home if you can
  • Get vaccinated when you are offered it, and encourage others to have theirs

You should get tested for COVID-19, this includes:

You should self-isolate immediately if you have symptoms or a positive test result for COVID-19. There is financial support if you’re off work because of coronavirus.

In addition, you should try to avoid travelling in and out of affected areas unless it is essential, for example for work (if you cannot work from home) or education.

Keeping yourself and others safe

Restrictions have been eased following the move to step 3. However we must continue to exercise caution. You should follow this guidance on what you can and cannot do. It is underpinned by law.

You should also follow the guidance on how to stop the spread of coronavirus at all times, including if you have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
