Let’s begin 2022 with good intentions.
Hampshire County Council have asked that whatever our plans are for the New Year, that we celebrate safely by following the COVID-19 guidance and taking precautions.
- Lateral Flow Test before you meet with others
- wear a face covering as required,
- wash hands frequently or use sanitiser when out and about,
- let in fresh air – especially when meeting indoors
- practice social distancing, if possible,
- use the NHS COVID App to check-in to places,
- make having the vaccine or booster one of your New Year resolutions, if you haven’t had the jab already.
