Coronavirus

Coronavirus restrictions will be in place until at least 19 July.

Some of the rules changed on 17 May. You can socialise indoors in a group of up to six people or two households, including for overnight stays. Up to 30 people can meet outside. Pubs, theatres and other venues can open indoors. Hotels, hostels and bed and breakfasts have welcomed back guests.

The gov.uk website has full details on what you can and can't do .

Despite the latest relaxation of the rules, the coronavirus has not gone away.  Please remember the 'hands, face, space' message. You should get a test  and follow the stay at home guidance  if you have Covid-19 symptoms.

The North Yorkshire County Council website has the latest information on how the virus is affecting our district.

Health information

The symptoms of the coronavirus are a new, continuous cough (this is where you cough a lot in an hour or have several coughing episodes), a fever (where your temperature goes above 37.8 degrees) and a loss of smell or taste.

If you, or someone you live with, has these symptoms you, or they, must immediately self-isolate at home to stop the risk of spreading the virus to other people. You should then book a coronavirus test.

There's more information on the NHS website.

The NHS Covid-19 app is also available for download from the Apple App Store or Google Play store.
