Latest COVID-19 advice

Although most formal COVID-19 restrictions are now no longer in place outside healthcare settings, COVID-19 has not gone away. There are simple and effective things you can still do to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.

Reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19 

You can help reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19 and keep yourself and your loved ones safe by: 

  • Getting vaccinated 

  • Letting fresh air in if you’re meeting indoors, or meeting outside 

  • Considering wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces if you can 

  • Getting tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and stay at home if you test positive 

How to get the COVID-19 vaccination 

Getting your COVID-19 vaccination is easier than ever, and it is not too late to get your vaccine. Visit www.thevaccinators.co.uk to find a walk-in clinic near you, or book vaccination appointments via www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or by calling 119

What to do if you have COVID-19 

Most people with COVID-19 get better within a few weeks. You may be able to look after yourself at home while you recover.  

If you have a high temperature, it can help to get lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids, and take over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol if you’re feeling uncomfortable. To treat a cough you should avoid lying on your back when you’re resting, or try having a teaspoon of honey. 

If your symptoms get worse or you feel unable to care for yourself, visit NHS 111 online via 111.nhs.uk or call 111 for advice.
