The legal requirement to self-isolate has been removed in England and replaced with guidance for living safely with the virus.
Trudi Grant, Director of Public Health for Somerset has emphasised that we should continue to be respectful of other people's concerns and personal situations. The public health advice is that anyone who tests positive for coronavirus, or who shows symptoms of having it, including a high temperature or cough, should stay at home and avoid contact with others. The same can be said for any other infectious illness, such a flu, or vomiting and diarrhoea.
The SCC Public Health team still advise basic infection control measures should be followed, as these will help slow the transmission of many seasonal illnesses and have a positive impact on reducing sickness levels and improving business continuity. These include regularly washing your hands, maintaining appropriate cleaning regimes and keeping occupied spaces well ventilated.
The vaccination remains the best form of defence that we have against Covid-19. Anyone who has not already booked their jab can do so quickly and easily at COVID-19 vaccinations in Somerset - Somerset CCG.
