COVID rates are increasing in Salford and across the country. Temporary measures have been put in place to respond to the Omicron variant to slow its arrival and spread.
These measures will be reviewed by the government before Christmas.
Key protections remain in place:
The guidance for individuals who are clinically extremely vulnerable has been updated for autumn.
We also strongly recommend using face coverings in all enclosed public places where it is not mandatory.
We are asking you to do this to show the Spirit of Salford, to protect others.
The virus is airborne so keeping your home ventilated is important especially when you have visitors. Opening windows regularly for a short time can reduce transmission.
We’re taking a cautious approach on council buildings and our own venues and whilst we’re welcoming the public back and capacity will increase, it will only be to safe levels for the venue and where ventilation is fully in place. We ask for your full support in these measures which are to keep our workforce and public visitors safe. Please follow signage and requests from our employees.
We will keep these extra precautions under review and relax them when it is safe to do so.
If you need to self-isolate due to coronavirus support may be available.
