Coronavirus - COVID-19

COVID-19 Government restrictions

On 4 January 2021 the government announced a national lockdown. You must stay at home.

Tell us if you think a business is not following guidance to stop the spread of COVID 19. We will not contact you unless we need more details, but we will use the information you provide to assess the situation.

We have COVID-19 guidance for businesses on our licensing pages and business grants pages

Test, trace and isolate

You should get a test only if you have symptoms of COVID-19.

If you have been contacted to say you have been close to someone who has tested positive you must self isolate for 10 days. You should only get a test if you get symptoms.

A negative test result does not mean that you can stop isolating before the 10 days have passed, as you may still develop the virus within that time. You must self-isolate for the full 10 days.

Find out more from GOV.UK about how test and trace works and when you should self isolate.
