Local restrictions and government guidance

The government has removed remaining domestic restrictions in England. There are still 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

  • Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces

  • Get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and stay at home if positive

Mask wearing

In England, face coverings are no longer required by law.

The government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet.

These changes apply to England only.

Covid Pass

Since 27 January, it is no longer mandatory for venues to require attendees to demonstrate their COVID-19 status.

However, some venues or events may still choose to require proof of COVID-19 status as a condition of entry to reduce risk for attendees and staff.

You will be able to show vaccination status, a recent negative test or exemption through the NHS COVID Pass.
