- get the vaccine or the vaccine booster
- if you don’t have symptoms take lateral flow tests twice a week, and if visiting someone vulnerable or going to a crowded place
- if you have symptoms – self isolate and book a PCR test
- you must wear a face covering (unless exempt) in most indoor public spaces and on public transport
- open windows when meeting indoors
- wash your hands regularly, and cover your nose and mouth if coughing or sneezing
- work from home as well as the office if you can – businesses and workplaces should follow the safer workplace guidance

The PHS COVID-19 Daily Dashboard includes a range of data on COVID-19 cases, hospitalisations, deaths and vaccinations, as well as neighbourhood and demographic breakdowns. Data on the number of confirmed COVID-19 inpatients in hospital and ICU has now been added to the dashboard too.
