Most coronavirus restrictions were lifted in England on 19 July. However, the virus hasn’t gone away and it’s important that we remain cautious and do all we can to protect each other.
See the GOV.UK website for the latest information and guidance.
This guidance applies even after you’ve had your vaccine and/or if you have received a negative COVID-19 test result. If you have coronavirus symptoms, stay at home and book a test immediately.
Be cautious, be kind, be safe, look after one another and visit Keep West Sussex Safe.
Actions to take
#KeepWestSussexSafe; remember hands, face, space and fresh air.
Wash your hands
Wash your hands with soap and water more often than usual, for at least 20 seconds, using hand sanitiser if soap and water are not available.
You should always wash your hands or use hand sanitiser after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, before you eat or handle food, or when you get to work or arrive home.
Wear a face covering
If you can, wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
See GOV.UK for further information about face coverings.
Be considerate when outside your home, give each other space, minimising the number of people you meet and the time you spend together.
Let in fresh air
When you’re indoors, letting in air by opening a window can disperse COVID-19 particles. Being outdoors reduces the risk further as fresh air dilutes the virus and you have more space to physically distance.
