Dudley borough encourages residents to continue to remain vigilant as COVID-19 hasn't gone away.

End to Covid-19 legal restrictions

The Government has removed the remaining legal Covid-19 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

From 1 April free COVID-19 tests will continue to be available to protect people who are at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19, and eligible for treatments, if they develop symptoms. Free tests will also continue for NHS and social care staff and those in other high-risk settings. Free testing for the general public ends after 31 March as set out in the Government’s 'Living with Covid' plan.
