COVID-19 support

To keep you and your community safe, whether you have been vaccinated or not, you should continue to:

  • Stay 1.5 metres away from other people and avoid handshakes and physical contact with people outside your household.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell and get tested for COVID-19. You must stay at home until your results come back.
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or use hand sanitiser.
  • Always cough or sneeze into your arm or a tissue and put the tissue in the bin straight away.
