Coronavirus (COVID-19): Your questions answered

The government has removed remaining domestic restrictions in England. There are still steps you can take to live safely with COVID-19 and reduce the risk of catching and spreading it: get vaccinated, let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside, and consider wearing a face covering in crowded enclosed spaces.

We know many of you have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and we’re working hard to make sure you have the support you need.
