Whilst legal requirements regarding face masks and social contact have been lifted, there are simple measures we can all take to help keep each other safe. It is expected and recommended that people:
- Get your vaccine - it's important to get both your first and second dose for maximum protection.
- Wear a face covering in crowded areas such as public transport.
- Keep testing regularly to help manage your personal risk and protect others.
- Self isolate and take a PCR test if you have symptoms. Mild symptoms for you could make others seriously ill. Don't guess - take a test
- Consider limiting close contact with people you do not live with and open windows to let fresh air in.
- Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day.
It is a legal requirement to self-isolate if you are told to by NHS Test and Trace.

Let's keep Lancashire safe
Following a rise in cases, everyone in Lancashire, including children, is now being strongly encouraged to take a Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, whether they are showing symptoms or not. You can book this through the NHS website and tick ‘I’ve been told to get a test by my local council, health protection team or healthcare professional’ if you don’t have any symptoms.
