Covid Information Champions Information Sheet Issue 11 (short version) 31 March 2021

Roadmap out of lockdown – The government’s four-step roadmap is now in the next stage as of 29 March. This means that outdoor gatherings (including in private gardens) of either 6 people or 2 households are allowed. The ‘stay at home’ rule has now ended, but many restrictions remain in place.

Vaccine Supplies – From 29 March for an expected four-week period, there will be a reduction in the weekly supply of vaccine. Fewer appointments will be available for first doses during April, as the bulk of vaccine supplies will be used to fully vaccinate people who are due their second jab.

Vaccination Programme – You can find information about the vaccination programme, including resources for adults with learning disabilities and resources in different languages and formats Click Here

Lateral Flow Testing for Schools – Only students in year 7 and above have been asked to complete rapid testing, also known as lateral flow tests, twice a week. You can find your nearest collection site and order online Click Here
