Keep going...It will be worth it!

Over the next two weeks, Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) will be reminding people about the things they can now do as of 29 March, whilst looking ahead to the restrictions that are set to ease from Monday 12 April. Find out more about the Government's roadmap.

It's crucial to keep reminding people that whilst we can now socialise outdoors, we must keep taking steps to prevent and further reduce cases of COVID-19 in our county. Following the rules will also help us to reach the next milestone in the roadmap.

This is especially important as we head into the Easter bank holiday weekend, when friends and family will be keen to celebrate and connect once again.

Please remember:

  • Even though restrictions are starting to ease, COVID-19 hasn't gone away.
  • COVID-19 doesn't take a break for Easter so it's important that we all keep doing everything we can to keep ourselves and others safe.
  • If you are seeing family and friends, remember you can only meet in groups of up to six people or two households/bubbles whilst outside.
  • Meeting up with other people in outdoor spaces makes it easier to maintain social distancing and more difficult for COVID19 to spread from person to person.
  • Follow the rules of hands, face, space and fresh air.
  • Self-isolate and get a test if COVID-19 symptoms start.
  • Get a twice-weekly, rapid COVID-19 test if you don't have symptoms, but need to leave the house for work or to care for others, or if you have regular contact with staff or children in school or pre-school.
  • Get vaccinated when invited.
