1. Covid's still here

COVID-19 has not gone away, the virus is still circulating in our community and it is vital we all take steps to stop it from spreading.

We must wear a face covering in most indoor public places and on all public transport, unless you are exempt.

We should take free rapid Covid tests (using a "lateral flow device") before doing things that could put us at higher risk of catching the virus - such as shopping in busy places, attending crowded events, or meeting up with groups of friends or family members.
These rapid tests remain free of charge and can be collected from local pharmacies.

Also under 'Plan B' you should now be working from home if this is possible.
