Continue to be cautious

We still need everyone to play their part in preventing the spread of COVID-19, to keep people safe and keep services running. 

  • Get all recommended doses of the vaccine as soon as you can.
  • If you have symptoms including a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a change in your sense of taste or smell, stay at home.
  • Be cautious - wash your hands regularly, wear a face covering, keep your distance from others, meet up outdoors where you can and let in fresh air if you're meeting indoors.
