Please see the links below for Environmental Health advice about the Update of Restrictions:
From 4am Tuesday 30 November:
- International arrivals from non-red list countries who are fully vaccinated will need to isolate at home and take a PCR test on or before day 2 following your arrival. You are only permitted to leave isolation if this test result is negative. If your test result is positive, you will need to isolate for 10 days. This is the law.
- Face coverings are a legal requirement in shops and on public transport. This is the law.
- Those who have come into contact with an individual who may have been infected with the Omicron variant will need to self-isolate. This will apply even if you are fully-vaccinated or aged 18 or under. This is the law.
- These temporary measures will be reviewed in 3 weeks’ time.
Wear a face covering:
In England, face coverings must now be worn in shops and shopping centres, in transport hubs and on public transport. See when to wear a face covering.
In indoor settings where a face covering is not legally required, you should still continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet.
Some people, including children under 11, are exempt from having to wear face coverings in any setting. Furthermore, anyone with a health condition or disability, which means they cannot wear a face covering, has a reasonable excuse for not wearing a face covering.
These changes apply to England only.
