Easing of Restrictions: Step 4 from 19 July

England moved to Step 4 of the Government's roadmap to ease coronavirus restrictions on 19 July. This means that most legal restrictions to control COVID-19 have been lifted. However, everyone should be cautious whilst managing the risks as cases of COVID-19 remain high. Find out what has changed and what you should do to protect yourself and others.

Vaccine Update

Everyone aged over 18 years can now get a vaccine and anyone within 3 months of their 18th birthday can also get vaccinated. Booked appointments are available through the national booking service by calling 119 or booking online - and walk-in options will continue through the summer. For more information on COVID vaccinations, please see the Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group website. 

Vulnerable People

The Government has published new guidance on protecting people who are clinically extremely vulnerable from COVID-19, coming into effect from 19 July 2021.

Regular testing to help stop the spread

About 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms but can still infect others. You should do a rapid test twice a week (every 3 to 4 days) to check if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading. Even if you’re vaccinated, there’s still a chance you can pass COVID-19 on, so you should keep getting tested regularly.

Symptom-free home testing kits are widely available at pharmacies and workplaces across Kent and can also be ordered online and delivered to your door. Find out How to get regular rapid tests

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you need a different test called a PCR test. Find out how to Get a PCR test if you have symptoms of COVID-19 on GOV.UK

Remember - 'Hands, Face, Space. And let fresh air in'.  

Every action counts in the fight against COVID-19:

  • Hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
  • Face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
  • Space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors)
  • Fresh Air - letting fresh air into indoor spaces can reduce the risk of infection from coronavirus by over 70%. Read more on the importance of ventilation to reduce spread of COVID-19.

Please watch this short video to see why hands, face and space rules are so important.
