COVID-19 guidance

The government has removed remaining domestic COVID-19 restrictions England. Universal free testing has now finished.

More information is available at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Help stop the spread

Although restrictions have been removed, infection and health complications from COVID-19 remain a risk to everyone, especially those older and more vulnerable.

There are still ways that everybody in Staffordshire can help stop the spread of infection and keep our communities safe:

  • Stay at home if you can if you're displaying Covid-19 symptoms
  • Get your vaccine or booster if you are eligible
  • Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces such as on public transport and shops
  • Meet people outdoors or let fresh air in if meeting indoors
  • Continue to wash your hands or use sanitiser regularly throughout the day

More information on how you can help reduce the risk.
