Enjoy Nottinghamshire half term safely

Meet outside

It’s half term next week (14 – 18 Feb), and there are plenty of fun activities taking place across the county for friends and family. You can visit our school holidays events page for activities and inspiration you’re sure to fall head over heels for! 

Whilst you’re out and about next week, please consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces and let plenty of fresh air in if you’re meeting others indoors. Although the days are starting to get longer with spring around the corner, we still need to remain cautious and act carefully to protect our health and care services and keep everyone safe.

Over 417,000 lateral flow tests completed last year

lateral flow tests

Last year over 281,500 test kits were given out at Community Collect sites and a further 136,000 supervised lateral flow tests were completed across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Around one in three people with Covid-19 don’t have any symptoms, but can still pass it on. That is why rapid testing remains a vital tool in helping to identify cases of coronavirus which would otherwise not be found.

There are different ways you can find lateral flow tests, inlcuding online and by calling 119.

New travel guidance

Travel guidance

From 4am tomorrow, 11 February, all testing requirements will be removed for eligible fully vaccinated arrivals, with only a Passenger Locator Form required.

Arrivals who are not recognised as fully vaccinated will only need to take a pre-departure test and a PCR test on or before day 2 after they arrive in the UK.

Children aged 12-15 in England will be able to prove their vaccination status or proof of prior infection via a digital NHS COVID Pass from 3 February for outbound travel.
