The Government published its COVID-19 recovery strategy on 11th May with the aim of the plan to “return life to as close to normal as possible, for an many people as possible as fast and fairly as possible in a way that avoids a new epidemic, minimises lives lost and maximises, health, economic and social outcomes”
More announcements will be made over the coming weeks and restrictions may be tightened if data suggests virus is spreading.
Social contact is still limited and good hygiene practices: hand washing, social distancing and regular disinfecting of surfaces touched by others are still essential.
If you have symptoms or are diagnosed with Covid-19 you must self isolate for 7 days (longer if you still have a temperature). If someone in your household has symptoms must self isolate for 14 days. Read more here.
The clinically vulnerable, those over 70 with pre-existing conditions and pregnant women should take particular care to minimise contact with those outside their household. The clinically extremely vulnerable, anyone who has received a letter from the NHS, their GP or clinician should continue to shield.
