Coronavirus latest advice and statistics

Due to the latest data and the numbers of people vaccinated, all COVID-19 restrictions have ended in England. However, as part of the Government's plan for living with Covid, we strongly encourage you continue to keep yourself and others safe.

Since 24 February:

  • You are no longer legally required to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19. New guidance advises people who test positive to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
  • You are no longer legally required to self-isolate if you are an unvaccinated close contact, and are no longer advised to test for 7 days if you are a fully vaccinated close contact. New guidance has set out precautions for reducing risk to yourself and others.

Since 27 January:

  • Face coverings are no longer needed in communal areas of secondary schools or for staff in communal areas of primary schools.
  • Face coverings do not legally have to be worn in public (although the guidance is still to wear coverings in enclosed or crowded spaces and when meeting strangers).
  • Mandatory Covid passports for entering nightclubs and large events are no longer compulsory. Although organisations can choose to use the NHS Covid pass if they wish.
  • The Government is no longer asking people to work from home. Employers should discuss working arrangements with their employees. Further information on working from home guidance.
  • Secondary school and college students no longer need to wear masks in classrooms.
  • The Government is no longer asking people to work from home. Employers should discuss working arrangements with their employees. Further information on working from home guidance.

A full list of guidance on these changes can be found on the government website.

Book your COVID-19 and flu vaccinations as soon as possible. Boost your immunity and get protected this winter - book your vaccinations here.

The vaccine is free. Beware of scammers. Criminals are using the COVID-19 vaccine as a way to target the public by tricking them to hand over cash or financial details. They are sending convincing-looking text messages letting people know they are eligible for the vaccine or phoning people directly pretending to be from the NHS, or local pharmacy.
