How you can help reduce the risks of COVID-19

31 March 2022

By following safer behaviours, you will reduce the risk of catching and passing on COVID-19:

  • “Catch it, Bin it, Kill it” and wash your hands
  • Get your first, second or booster vaccination
  • Open windows and let fresh air in when meeting people indoors
  • Wear a face-covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, like shopping centres and public transport
  • Try to stay at home if you feel unwell
  • Take a test if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and avoid other people if you test positive

See the GOV.UK website for full details on each of these safety recommendations.

Get vaccinated

The NHS is providing vaccinations through walk-in centres or by appointment. First, second and booster vaccinations are all available.
