Covid: What is the guidance across the UK now? 12/05/2022

Posted on May 12th, 2022

What is the guidance in England?

In England, the government suggests wearing a mask in “crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet”.

Face coverings are still required in healthcare settings, although patients no longer need to socially distance from each other in NHS hospitals, GP surgeries and emergency departments.

If you test positive for Covid you are no longer legally required to self-isolate, but you are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with others for at least five full days.
