The rules and restrictions have changed yet again and we want to ensure our communities understand the expectations and what you can do to keep yourselves safe. Below are the key takeaways from the latest COVID-19 updates as laid out by the government.

Return To Plan A

COVID-19 plan A

Thanks to the success of the vaccination programme, England has been able to return to the steps laid out in Plan A.

This means:

  • You are no longer required to work from home.
  • Face coverings are no longer mandatory.

Although, you are still advised to wear a face-covering when:

  • Visiting those most vulnerable to COVID-19.
  • When in crowded indoor venues.

International Travel

If you are fully vaccinated, you will no longer need to test when arriving into the UK (after February 11th).

However, if you are not fully vaccinated, you will need proof of a negative pre-departure test & a PCR on or before day 2 of arriving in the UK.

Testing & Self-Isolation

The self-isolation advice has changed, meaning:

  • You may leave isolation on day 6 if you have 2 consecutive days of negative lateral flow tests.
  • You should continue to isolate for up to 10 days if you still test positive until 2 consecutive negative tests are seen.

Booster Jabs

More than 37.3 million adults have now been boosted. Use the NHS booking service or find a COVID-19 walk-in vaccination site near you online to get yours.
