There is no legal requirement to self-isolate, but Oxfordshire’s public health advice is to remain cautious. There are three steps that will make a difference.
- Be considerate. If you feel ill, remain at home and avoid contact with others while you have symptoms.
- Be aware. There will be members of our community who are nervous about the lifting of restrictions - adjust your behaviour accordingly.
- Be cautious. Wear a face covering in crowded places, or if you’re meeting others indoors, let fresh air in.
All COVID testing sites in the county are now closed in line with the ending of mass testing. Free tests, both symptomatic and asymptomatic, will only be available for those groups and settings identified by the government. Read more on GOV.UK
