COVID-19 Safety

Although most legal restrictions have been lifted in the UK, and many people have been fully vaccinated, it is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19. The virus will be a feature of our lives for the foreseeable future, so we need to learn to live with it and manage the risk to ourselves and others. As COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, it is important that we all use personal judgement to manage our own risk. All of us can play our part by exercising common sense and considering the risks. While no situation is risk free, there are actions we can take to protect ourselves and others around us. Following this guidance, will help you stay safe and protect others by controlling the spread. Every action to help reduce the spread will reduce any further resurgence of the virus in the coming months.
