Preventing the spread of COVID-19

There are currently no government restrictions in England. However, to help reduce the risk of catching COVID-19 and passing it on to others you can:

  • let fresh air in if meeting others indoors
  • practise good hygiene:
    • wash your hands
    • cover your coughs and sneezes
    • clean your surroundings frequently
  • wear a face covering
  • get vaccinated

These steps also help to reduce the spread of other respiratory infections which spread easily and can cause serious illness in some people (for example, influenza).
