East of England public health chiefs have urged caution and advised how to continue to keep yourself and others safe
There are still many cases of COVID-19 in England and there is a risk you could catch or pass on the virus, even once you are fully vaccinated. This means it is important that you understand and consider the risks of catching or spreading COVID-19 in all situations.
While no situation is risk free, there are easy and effective actions we can take to protect ourselves and others around us.

Get vaccinated

Let fresh air in if you meet indoors. Meeting outdoors is safer

Wear a face covering

Get tested and self-isolate if required

Take tests if you do not have symptoms to help manage your risk

Try to stay at home if you’re feeling unwell

Wash your hands regularly and cover coughs and sneezes

Use the NHS COVID-19 app

Limit close contact with other people

The list might look long but luckily it is a reminder to keep on doing what you’ve probably been doing for the last 18 months.

The key thing people can do to ‘play their part’ and help society to open up more is to make sure that they are double vaccinated as soon as they become eligible.
