How to safely return to your normal routine after testing positive for Covid.

How to help to stop COVID-19 spreading


There are things you can do to help to reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19:

  • get vaccinated – everyone aged 12 and over can book COVID-19 vaccination appointments now or attend a drop-in site. See for clinic locations and times.
  • get tested and stay at home if you have symptoms
  • stay at home and avoid contact with other people if you test positive
  • consider taking a test even if you do not have symptoms
  • wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  • meet people outside and avoid crowded areas
  • open doors and windows to let in fresh air if meeting people inside
  • wear a face covering when it's hard to stay away from other people – particularly indoors or in crowded places – and on school/public transport
