Legislation and guidance

There is a risk you could catch or pass on the virus, even if you are fully vaccinated. All of us can play our part by understanding the situations where risks of COVID-19 infection and transmission are likely to be higher and taking action to reduce these risks.

This includes:

  • getting fully vaccinated
  • letting fresh air in if you meet indoors - meeting outdoors is safer
  • wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed areas, unless exempt
  • trying to stay at home if you’re feeling unwell
  • washing your hands regularly and cover coughs and sneezes
