NHS Test and Trace service launched
The government is introducing the service to help return life more to normal, in a way that is safe and protects our NHS and social care.
Anyone who tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace to find out about who they’ve been in close contact with recently. Then, if necessary, those they’ve interacted with will be notified and told they must self-isolate at home to help stop the spread of the virus.
New lockdown restrictions from today – 1 June
From today some of our lockdown restrictions that have been in place have changed.
1) Nurseries and other early years settings and reception, year one and year six in primary schools have reopened in a safe way;
2) Outdoor retail and car showrooms, where social distancing is generally easier, have been able to reopen; and
3) Up to six people can meet outside (in parks, gardens and other private outdoor space) – provided those from different households continue strictly to observe social distancing rules by staying two metres apart.
