Covid Updates

This week, certain regulations were eased and we returned to ‘Plan A’. The full, updated guidance can be found here.
Covid-19 case numbers have increased slightly in the last week and remain high.

The main changes were:

  • Venues and events are no longer required by law to check visitors’ NHS Covid Pass. The Pass can still be used on a voluntary basis.The government is no longer asking people to work from home if they can. People should now talk to their employers to agree arrangements to return to the office.
  • Face coverings are no longer advised for staff and pupils in secondary school and college classrooms.
  • Face coverings are no longer advised for staff and pupils in communal areas of secondary schools, nor for staff in communal areas of primaries.
  • There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. The government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces.
With the numbers still high in Somerset it is important for us now to focus on living safely with Covid-19 moving forward and so the following simple guidance and advice remains:
  • If you haven’t yet had a vaccination you should step forward, whether it’s a first dose, second dose or booster. Please check here for full booking details.
  • Please continue to take regular lateral flow tests – particularly before meeting others. These can be ordered here. Also, remember to report your test results here.
  • Wear a well-fitting face-covering when in enclosed spaces such as supermarkets and try to meet others outside or ensure there is good ventilation when meeting inside.
  • If you have any Covid-19 symptoms you need to take a PCR test. If you test positive, you must self-isolate.
  • Keep your hands clean by washing often with soap and water or using an antibacterial handwash, this protects against a lot of infectious diseases.
