Step 4 – Restrictions Lifting

Although most legal restrictions were lifted on the 19th July and many people have been vaccinated, it is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated, and we are still in the third wave of this pandemic in the UK.

There are steps you can continue to take to reduce the risk of COVID-19, including: limiting close contact with people you don’t live with; increasing close contact gradually; meeting outdoors where possible; letting fresh air into homes.

We’re advised to continue wearing face coverings in enclosed spaces, particularly on public transport, and many local businesses will still require customers to do so.

Anyone who develops COVID-19 symptoms, must still self-isolate immediately and get a PCR test, even if the symptoms are mild.
