From Monday, July 19, most legal restrictions to control COVID-19 will be lifted in England.
However, covid rates are high and the virus is still spreading so we all need to continue to be careful and cautious, even if we have been vaccinated.
We are continuing to strongly encourage people to wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.
Anyone using the Metrolink network, bus stations or transport interchanges in Greater Manchester must still wear a face covering unless exempt.
It is also recommended:
- All adults get both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine
- If you are meeting up with people try and do so outdoors or if indoors to let fresh air in by opening doors and windows
- Everyone takes free, regular lateral flow coronavirus tests twice a week
- Everyone washes their hands regularly for 20 seconds
If you or anyone in your household has symptoms or tests positive you must self-isolate. You must also isolate if you are told to by NHS Test and Trace.
