New ‘HIGH’ COVID alert level announced for Nottinghamshire, but what does it mean?

With cases rising across the county and the introduction of a new COVID local alert system announced by the Government yesterday, we understand that this affects your daily life and it can all be a little overwhelming.

  • 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 six 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.

If you are considered to be extremely vulnerable, please view the guidance on shielding in a high alert level area.

We know there are lots of questions you will have and we’re here to support and help you.
