Health advice and guidance

Government and PHE advice

The government is constantly assessing the risk of Covid-19 and updating its information for the public regularly.

The latest advice from the Government is to stay alert. 

There are three simple actions we must all do to keep on protecting each other:

  • Wash hands - keep washing your hands regularly
  • Cover face - wear a face covering in enclosed spaces
  • Make space - stay at least 2 metres apart - or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions.

Please download and use the NHS Covid-19 contact-tracing app. Some users of the app have reported receiving a message notification titled ‘Covid-19 exposure logging’.This FAQ from the NHS explains why, and what this means.   

The government also has advice on how to get tested for Covid-19 and who is eligible.
