Pubs, restaurants and hairdressers will be able to open from 4 July with strict social distancing and cleansing routines in place. Relaxation in the restrictions for Rutland people who are shielding will also continue as planned from 6 July.

It’s important that the national guidance continues to be followed:

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Work from home if you can
  • Limit your contact with other people
  • Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Do not leave home if you have symptoms, apart from to visit a testing facility

Arrange a test

The symptoms of Covid-19 are the recent onset of any of the following:

  • A new continuous cough
  • A high temperature
  • A loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell
