Official public health guidance and updates

Updated: Jul 28, 2020

Keep up to date with latest official guidance to keep you and your family safe.

Hand washing

Stay alert

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • stay at home as much as possible

  • work from home if you can

  • limit contact with other people

  • keep your distance from people not in your household (2 metres apart where possible)

  • wash your hands regularly

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

We will add to this blog as latest information is made available. For latest info please see.

From 24 July:

  • in order to help contain the spread of the virus as we open up more premises, face coverings are now required in shops and supermarkets – in addition to public transport where they were already required. People are also strongly encouraged to wear face coverings in other enclosed public spaces where there are people they do not normally meet

From 25 July:

  • sports facilities and venues, including such as indoor gyms, fitness and dance studios, indoor swimming pools and indoor water parks, can open

From 1 August, subject to rates of transmission closer to the time:

  • employers will have more discretion, in consultation with their employees, on how to ensure people can work safely – working from home is one way to do this, but workplaces can also be made safe by following COVID-19 Secure guidelines

  • the clinically extremely vulnerable will no longer need to follow advice on shielding, though should still take particular care to follow the social distancing guidelines when meeting people

  • bowling alleys, skating rinks and casinos can open

  • conference and exhibition centres will be able to reopen in order to enable pilots for business events to take place – they should not yet be open fully to host events more widely

  • indoor performances to a live audience can begin to take place, in line with COVID-19 Secure guidelines and subject to the success of pilots that are taking place as soon as possible

  • further pilots of larger events can take place in venues, including in sports stadia and business conferences

  • small wedding receptions - sit-down meals for no more than 30 people – can take place, subject to COVID-19 Secure guidance

  • all remaining close contact services – such as facial treatment and make up application – can restart, in line with COVID-19 Secure guidelines
