Cheshire East Council is asking residents to remain cautious, following the announcement by government that the measures put in place under plan B in England will be lifted from (today) 27 January 2022.
Wearing face masks and working from home are no longer a requirement but remain effective ways to protect yourself from Covid. However, there is still a legal requirement in place until 24 March 2022, to self-isolate if you test positive for Covid-19. Covid passports have also been dropped.
Latest figures released on the official UK government website (21 January) show the rate of positive cases in Cheshire East is still very high at 1,038 per 100,000 population. The rate per 100,000 population in the North West is 877 and 988 in England.
