Coronavirus Restrictions

England is now in Step 4
Although most legal restrictions have been lifted at step 4, and many people have been vaccinated, it is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated, and we are still in the third wave of this pandemic in the UK.

You should get a test and follow the stay at home guidance if you have COVID-19 symptoms.

Some of the rules and guidelines:

  • The requirement to wear face coverings in law has been lifted. However, the Government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.
  • You do not need to stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with. There are also no limits on the number of people you can meet. However, in order to minimise risk at a time of high prevalence, you should limit the close contact you have with those you do not usually live with, and increase close contact gradually. This includes minimising the number, proximity and duration of social contacts.
  • If you test positive you will still need to self-isolate regardless of your vaccination status or age. When self-isolating, follow the stay-at-home guidance. This will help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 to other members of your household and community. You must stay at home at all times and not have contact with other people.

Bradford & Ilkley Visitor Information Centres are open to the public.  

Please get in touch or via @VisitBradford on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Keeping yourself and others safe -

  • Fresh Air - Help protect those around you by socialising outdoors to help blow the virus away.
  • Testing - Rapid lateral flow testing is available for free to anybody, but is particularly focused on those who are not fully vaccinated.
  • Face covering - Help protect those around you by wearing a face covering in crowded places.
  • App - Using the NHS COVID-19 app helps stop the spread of the virus.  Please download the NHS App, protect your loved ones. Download the App.
  • Wash hands - keep washing your hands regularly

Remember - Air. Testing. Face Covering. App. Handwashing - Let’s keep life moving.
