Today is the day when we are celebrating further easing of restrictions, something we have all waited such a long time for. However, we are also aware that there is a new variant of the virus not far away in Bolton and Blackburn so we need to remain vigilant.
We have today received the following advice from the Government which we are sharing with you.
Given the increased risk of transmitting COVID-19 in areas where the new variant is spreading fastest, everyone is advised to take particular caution when meeting anyone outside your household or support bubble in these areas. This will keep yourself and others safe. In particular, wherever possible, you should try to:
-Meet outside rather than inside where possible
-Try to keep 2 metres apart from people that you don’t live with (unless you have formed a support bubble with them), this includes friends and family you don’t live with
-Get tested twice a week and isolate if you are positive
-Get vaccinated when you are offered it, and encourage others to do so as well
