ERYC Coronvirus Update

4-step plan

We are now in Step 4 of the plan and all previous restrictions have ended.

The government has announced that:

From 16 August, if you have been fully vaccinated you will be exempt from the requirement to self-isolate if you are a contact of a positive case. From this date, if you are under 18 and a contact of a positive case you will also be exempt from self-isolation. In both instances, you will be advised to take a PCR test. If you test positive you will still need to self-isolate regardless of your vaccination status or age.

Use of face coverings

In England, the legal requirement to wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces has ended. However, government guidance says it 'expects and recommends' the continued wearing of masks in crowded areas such as public transport.

The Covid-19 pandemic is fast moving.
