Current Information and advice
Covid-19 has not gone – protect yourself and others:
- Wash hands, cover face, make space
- Let fresh air circulate if indoors
- Test yourself regularly even if you don’t have symptoms
The covid-19 vaccine is safe, effective and available across Castle Point. It’s strongly recommended that everyone who is eligible gets vaccinated, for the best protection against covid-19.
Booster doses are currently being rolled out nationwide. You will be contacted by the NHS to receive your booster vaccination once eligible.
Businesses and venues
Please keep an eye on business specific guidance for updates on working safely
Remember you still have a legal duty to manage risks at your premises and you should have a risk assessment which includes Covid-19 and you should take reasonable steps to mitigate any risks identified.
Businesses are encouraged to continue to display the QR code for customers who still wish to “check in” with the NHS test and trace app.
The Government are encouraging organisations in higher risk settings to use the NHS Covid Pass in order to minimise the spread of Covid-19. This might be in a setting which perhaps attracts a large crowd. Please note, this is not currently mandatory and should not be used as a condition of entry to essential services and essential businesses such as retail.
