The Government has removed remaining COVID-19 restrictions. There are steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:
- Get vaccinated
- Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
- Wash your hands regularly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds
- If you have COVID-19 symptoms, stay at home if you can until you feel well enough to resume your normal activities, and you no longer have a high temperature
- Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
