COVID-19 is still around, and we need to reduce the risk of catching it and passing it on. The best way to do this is by:

  • Getting fully vaccinated and boosted
  • Letting fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside if possible
  • Wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces
  • Staying at home if you feel unwell
  • Washing your hands and following the advice to ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’.

We are currently working on reviewing and updating all of our COVID-19 webpages.

Latest video Update 25 April 2022

Director of Public Health Dr Lincoln Sargeant says that while it is important that we get on with life, we must keep an eye out for new COVID-19 variants that might emerge. New strains can cause a more severe spectrum of disease and escape vaccine coverage.
