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.
In his latest video, our director of public health, Dr Lincoln Sargeant, talks about the successful work with our hospitality sector to safely welcome visitors this summer and the steps we all need to take to protect ourselves and our local NHS as it goes into the busiest season of the year.
