Harborough District Coronavirus Update

Lifting of most Covid-19 restrictions in England

From Monday 19 July 2021, most Covid-19 restrictions in England will be lifted.

While cases of Covid-19 are high and still rising, please continue to remain cautious. Some protective measures will remain in place, including taking a test if you develop symptoms of Covid-19 and self- isolating if you test positive or if you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace.

Remember, around 1 in 3 people with Covid-19 don’t show any symptoms. You can take a twice-weekly lateral flow Covid-19 test and help to stop the spread of the virus. Information about how to obtain a pack of tests is on Leicestershire County Council's website.

The vaccine is the best defence we have against the Covid-19 virus and by having two doses at least 8 weeks apart you will not only protect yourself, but you’ll be helping to reduce the spread of the virus. Full details of all the options for getting the Covid-19 vaccine wherever you live in the Harborough district and other areas of Leicestershire, as well as Leicester and Rutland, are on the local NHS website.
