Covid-19 Taking the next step

From Monday 19 July, the message from central government is changing to ‘living with COVID’ and ‘managing risk.’ The focus will be on how we should all behave responsibly.

If you haven’t yet, check out the government’s Step 4 guidance on its website. It has also published new guidance if you’re clinically extremely vulnerable.

Most legal restrictions will be lifted, including the two-metre rule and the legal requirement to wear face coverings. However, the government expects and recommends people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport. A number of businesses and other private venues are expected to ask people to still wear face coverings upon entry.
