Government issues Covid safety reminder ahead of Jubilee bank holiday weekend
The Government has posted some Covid safety advice ahead of the Jubilee weekend, urging people to ‘protect yourself and those around you’ from the virus.
With a four-day bank holiday weekend on the horizon, thousands of Brits will be travelling to visit friends and family.
From street parties to parades to concerts, the nation will be out in force to celebrate 70 years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
But the Department of Health and Social Care has issued a five-step guide to keeping the Jubilee celebrations Covid-safe.
The guidance comes from NHS Test and Trace and is advisory – all legal domestic Covid restrictions have been lifted.
People are being advised to book their vaccines and boosters if they haven’t already, and to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if they feel unwell, especially with flu-like symptoms and a high temperature.
The advice also includes opening windows to allow fresh air to circulate, washing hands regularly, and wearing face coverings in crowded and enclosed spaces.
These measures are particularly important when meeting with people who are at higher risk of serious illness from Covid-19.
The full latest health guidance is available at gov.uk/coronavirus.
