National Guidance: Autumn and Winter plan

For us to have a safe and unrestricted winter, we need everyone to remain vigilant and comply with guidance. Everyone, including those who are fully vaccinated, should follow behaviours and actions that reduce transmission and help to keep people safe.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Find out what we are doing to prevent and respond to COVID-19 in Torbay.

We are currently in the Autumn and Winter Plan which is the government approach to steer the country through the coming months. Under Plan A the main lines of defence are vaccination and behaviours, rather than lockdown. Measures are set out under Plan B if so required, to prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed.

It remains important everyone, including those who are fully vaccinated, follow behaviours and actions that reduce transmission and help to keep people safe.

Latest video Update 29 November 2021

In his latest video, our Director of Public Health, Dr Lincoln Sargeant, urges parents and carers to ensure their children are taking twice weekly lateral flow device tests before going to school. This will help slow down the spread of COVID-19, which has been rising rapidly among children.
