Enhanced support in Brighton & Hove
Due to high numbers of cases in the city, additional government support is currently in place to keep each other and the city safe and open for business.
Please follow national guidelines and make sure you take the following precautions:
- get both vaccine doses as soon as possible – walk-in sessions are available every day or you can book online
- keep taking symptom-free tests twice a week – pick up test packs from most pharmacies, Jubilee Library or Hove Town Hall
- aged 18 to 29? Get an additional free PCR test when you’re out and about
- if you have any symptoms – isolate immediately and book a test
- isolate if you have symptoms, test positive or are a contact
- take symptom-free LFD tests before embarking on any journey
England has moved to step 4 of the roadmap
Coronavirus is still a serious health risk.
This means that everyone should be cautious while managing the risks to help protect yourself and others.
While cases are high, the government expects and recommends that you also:
- wear face coverings when in enclosed spaces such as public transport
- meet outside where possible, or let fresh air in when you are inside
- keep your social contacts to a minimum
Report a business
If you think that a business is a serious risk to public health because they are not following current government guidelines, you can send an email to Covid.Information@brighton-hove.gov.uk to report it to the Covid Information Team.
If a business is trading when it should be closed under the current restrictions, you can send an email to email@example.com to report it to Trading Standards.
Report an individual
If you think that a person is not following government guidelines, you can report it to Sussex Police.
You should only report something if you think there is a serious breach of the rules like a large gathering of people obviously from lots of different households.
