We have moved to the final step of the Government’s roadmap for managing COVID 19 and there are new changes we all need to be aware of.

From 16 August, anyone identified as a close contact of a positive case will no longer have to self isolate, providing they have been fully vaccinated and are not displaying
any COVID 19 symptoms.

The pandemic is far from over and the number of cases is rising but we will need to live with the virus. We have growing evidence that our vaccines significantly reduce the chance of an infection leading to hospitalisation or death.

  • As a community leader, group or organisation, you are ideally positioned to help share the advice contained in this information pack with members of your community, to help stop the spread of the virus.
  • Please distribute this information pack to your local community members so they can follow the advice and information in this pack.
  • You may be given some helpful resources to promote testing and vaccination directly from the local authority. There are also resources available via the Public Health England COVID 19 resource centre, including assets to promote regular testing and vaccination, which can be distributed via your community network and through your communications channels such as email, social media and websites.

You can download the community support pack below.
