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.
