Let’s work together to protect our Tameside community

Covid-19 remains a serious health risk. You should stay cautious and practice safe behaviours to help protect the most vulnerable people in our borough.

  • Get vaccinated and get your booster dose.
  • Stay at home if you feel unwell and take a test.
  • Wear a face covering in most indoor public places and on public transport.
  • Let fresh air in if you meet indoors. Meeting outdoors is safer.
  • Get tested and self-isolate if required.                 


From 24 February
  • You will not be legally required to self-isolate if you test positive, but should stay at home and avoid contact with other people if you can.
  • Staff and students in most educational and childcare settings no longer need to test twice a week.
  • You no longer have to work from home if you can. Ask your employer about arrangements to return to the workplace.
  • Face coverings are no longer a legal requirement, including in communal areas of school- the government suggests you still continue to wear one in crowded indoor spaces where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet. Face coverings may still be required in some health care settings.
From April 1st
  • Free testing for the general public ends as part of the government’s strategy to live with and manage the virus.
  • The updated guidance continues free asymptomatic LFTs to help protect specific groups where infection can spread quickly and prevalence is high.
  • The Darnton Road and Beeley Street PCR testing centres in Ashton and Hyde, along with the Mobile Testing Site at Curzon Ashton, are now closed.
  • Pharmacy Collect and the national portal service for ordering free rapid Lateral Flow testing kits (LFTs) are also now closed. 
As we learn to live with COVID-19 we must still practice safe behaviours.
