Living with Covid

{Play}wc-covid-19-update-imageGovernment confirms plan for living with COVID.

Wiltshire Council is asking residents to take a cautious approach after the Government has unveiled its ‘Living with COVID’ plan, which will see all remaining legal restrictions related to the virus removed by Thursday 24 February 2022.
 
The main points are:

  • Until 1 April 2022, people who test positive are advised to stay at home.  Adults and children who test positive are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least five full days and then continue to follow the guidance until they have received two negative test results on consecutive days.
  • The remaining restrictions in England will be removed from 24 February 2022.  The legal requirement to self-isolate ends on this date also.
  • Self-isolation support payments, national funding for practical support and the medicine delivery service will no longer be available from 24 February 2022.
  • Routine contact tracing ends, including venue check-ins on the NHS COVID-19 app.
  • Fully vaccinated adults and those aged under 18 who are close contacts are no longer advised to test daily for seven days and the legal requirement for close contacts who are not fully vaccinated to self-isolate will be removed.
