COVID-19 remains a serious health risk. You should stay cautious to help protect yourself and others. The latest advice from the UK Government says:
- Let fresh air in if you meet indoors. Meeting outdoors is safer
- You must wear a face covering in shops and on all public transport (check local differences)
- Get tested and self-isolate, if required
- If you haven’t already, get vaccinated
With the emergence of variants such as Omicron, caution is still needed, but also the news about treatments is welcomed. See latest news release from the MHRA.
