Dudley borough encourages residents to continue to remain vigilant as Coronavirus cases are on the rise. Most legal restrictions have been lifted since the national lockdown ended, cautious guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19 remains.

Some key protections remain in place:

  • symptomatic testing (PCR tests) and targeted asymptomatic testing (LFT tests) in education, high risk workplaces and to help people manage their personal risk
  • isolating when positive or when contacted by NHS Test and Trace
  • border quarantine: for all arriving from red list countries, and for those people arriving from amber list countries, other than those UK residents fully vaccinated in the UK vaccine programme
  • encouraging and supporting businesses and large events to use certification in high risk settings. Government will work with organisations where people are likely to be in close proximity to others outside their household to encourage use of certification

Government recommendations to reduce the spread of COVID-19:

  • Whilst Government is no longer instructing people to work from home if they can, Government expects and recommends a gradual return over the summer
  • Government expects and recommends people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as on busy public transport
  • Spending time outside or letting fresh air in
  • Minimising the number, proximity and duration of social contacts
