Updated government coronavirus guidance

Date: Thursday 25 November 2021

The Cabinet Office has issued updated guidance to remind people of the actions they can take to help reduce the spread of coronavirus and help reduce the pressure on the NHS over the winter months.

People are at higher risk of catching or passing on COVID-19 in crowded and enclosed spaces, where there are more people who might be infectious and where there is limited fresh air. As such, businesses should continue to ensure they have adequate ventilation and people should wear face coverings if in crowded or enclosed spaces.

The guidance also recommends that people take a rapid lateral flow test before attending any higher risk spaces to give piece of mind that they are unlikely to be infectious. As workplaces start to draw up plans for Christmas parties, employers may therefore wish to encourage staff to take a test before any activities to reduce the risk of people spreading the virus without knowing it.
