Latest Step 4 information from South Gloucestershire Council

South Gloucestershire council is urging extreme caution, and advising residents to continue to:

  • Come forward when invited for both doses of the vaccine
  • Wear a face covering in enclosed and crowded spaces where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet or where it will make you and others feel more comfortable
  • Try to meet outdoors or in well-ventilated indoor areas
  • Self-isolate and get a PCR test if you have symptoms
  • Self-isolate if you test positive or are told to do so by NHS Test and Trace. This remains a legal requirement
  • Take a regular rapid test twice a week if you don’t have symptoms. Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze
  • Stay at home if you are unwell, to reduce the risk of passing any illnesses onto friends, family, colleagues, and others in your community
  • Be kind, courteous and considerate of others – take into account not only your own risks, but also of those around you, such as those with clinical vulnerabilities.
