Coronavirus (COVID-19)

From 14 October 2020, the whole of Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City are now on a high alert level, which means you must:

  • not meet socially with friends and family indoors in any setting unless you live with them or have formed a support bubble with them. 
  • not meet outdoors in groups of more than 6 people whom you do not live with (or have not formed a support bubble with), including in a garden or other outdoor space. This limit of 6 includes children of any age. These restrictions are law and fines may be issued to those who do not adhere to them.
  • wear a face covering where required, unless you are exempt
  • wash your hands frequently
  • provide full and accurate details of everyone in your group when visiting a café, pub or restaurant as part of the NHS Test and Trace Service
  • stick to the full guidance around car sharing
  • self-isolate immediately if symptoms appear and book a free test by calling 119 or visiting the NHS COVID-19 tests webpage.
