Key advice we should all follow to keep each other safe and well

Not had your Covid vaccinations yet? Get your vaccines as soon as you can so you have the best protection against the virus.

Meeting others or heading out to crowded or enclosed places? Take lateral flow tests, report your results and isolate if you test positive. You can order tests online, or collect from Jubilee Library, Hove Town Hall, or many pharmacies. 

Reduce your chance of catching or spreading the virus in places where it’s busy or there’s limited fresh air.

  • Meet outside where possible or open a window to let fresh air in.
  • Wear a face covering in crowded or enclosed spaces, including on public transport.
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser regularly and cover coughs and sneezes.

Feeling unwell? Stay at home to reduce the risk of passing other illnesses onto others.

Have any Covid symptoms? You must self-isolate immediately and get a PCR test.

Tested positive on a PCR or lateral flow test? You must stay at home and follow the latest self-isolation rules. When you receive your results, you’ll be given advice about what to do next.
