Greater Manchester has been placed onto the 'High' Local Covid Alert Level
This means from Wednesday, October 14:
- People must not meet with anybody outside their household or support bubble in any indoor setting, whether at home or in a public place
- People must not meet in a group of more than 6 outside, including in a garden or other space.
- People should aim to reduce the number of journeys they make where possible. If they need to travel, they should walk or cycle where possible, or to plan ahead and avoid busy times and routes on public transport.
The Mayor, Greater Manchester’s 10 councils and the Greater Manchester NHS (National Health Service) are working together closely to support residents and businesses across the city region at this challenging time.
The country’s response to the outbreak is being managed by Government centrally, which has implemented emergency measures based on its understanding of the situation.
We are all being asked to continue to stay at home as much as possible.
- work from home if you can
- limit contact with other people
- keep your distance from people not in your household (two metres apart where possible)
- wash your hands regularly
Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
As lockdown has continued to ease, more and more activities are allowed.
People are also reminded that from July 24 face coverings will be mandatory in shops and supermarkets.
