Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The most up to date information about how to stay safe and help prevent the spread of coronavirus is available on GOV.UK.

Vaccines give you the best protection against coronavirus. You may be able to get your jab at a walk-in clinic, without an appointment. Find out more on the vaccinations page. It's never too late to get your vaccines done.

If you do have coronavirus symptoms, you should try and stay at home as much as you can. This might include working from home if you're able to, and asking friends or family to shop for you if possible. If you do leave the house, try to avoid coming into close contact with people, especially people who are at higher risk of illness because of their immune system. Washing your hands regularly, and covering your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough, can also stop you from passing on coronavirus (as well as other viruses like the flu).

Most people are no longer eligible for free lateral flow tests. Find out who is eligible for a free NHS coronavirus test. If you want to get a coronavirus test and you're not eligible for a free one, you must pay for it yourself. You can buy a test from some pharmacies and retailers, in person or online.

The latest data about coronavirus in the UK can be found on the coronavirus dashboard on GOV.UK.
