Restrictions in the UK due to COVID-19 have been relaxed. However, that doesn’t mean we all should throw caution to the wind. Here are some necessary guidelines for COVID-19 prevention, as they are recently set out by the UK government:
Limit your travels as much as possible during your stay in the UK. If travel is necessary, plan to do it safely. Follow all instructions given to avoid the deadly virus.
Whenever you experience one or some of the COVID-related symptoms, stay home to observe for a while.
If symptoms persist, get tested for COVID-19 to make sure of your status.
Compliance limits have been relaxed. Outdoor meetings are limited to 30 people, while indoor meetings are limited to 6 people or two households (each household can include a support bubble if allowed).
You should also follow the advice on the spread of the coronavirus at all times, even if you have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
You should continue working from home if you can. In situations where it is necessary to work outdoors, observe all COVID-19 protocols to ensure your safety.
The rules for nursing home residents visiting and receiving visitors have changed, allowing up to five named visitors (two at a time), provided the visitors test negative for COVID-19.
All higher education students can access in-person teaching.
Support groups and parent-child group meeting limits have been increased to 30 people (not including children under the age of 5)
