COVID-19 Hub

About the COVID-19 Hub

Guidance applies to England only from the 24 February 2022

  • You will not be legally required to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19. Stay at home if you can and avoid contact with other people.
  • You will not have to take daily tests or be legally required to self-isolate following contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Government announced the end of all existing COVID restrictions in England on 24 February 2022. A Living with COVID paper is available outlining the changes.

The situation is now very different to when shielding was first introduced. We know a lot more about the virus and what makes someone more or less vulnerable to COVID-19, the vaccine continues to be successfully rolled out, and other treatments and interventions are becoming available. 

The Government will continue to assess the situation and the risks posed by COVID-19 and, based on clinical advice, will respond accordingly to keep the most vulnerable safe.

The global pandemic is not yet over, and the Council will continue monitoring and controlling outbreaks and offer support to residents who need it. 

Our offer of support will be reviewed in line with Government guidance.
