The latest government guidance
The government has removed legal restrictions for coronavirus (COVID-19) in England, as of Thursday 24 February. Residents are reminded that the best way to stay safe is to:
- Get vaccinated and get your booster dose
- Let fresh air in if meeting others indoors
- Remember the basics of good hygiene
- Wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces.
Guidance for living safely with COVID-19 can be found on their website.
The following centres are now closed for PCR testing:
Michael Flanders Resources Centre, Church Lane, Acton, W3 8PP
Featherstone Terrace Car Park, Southall, UB2 5AB
- Gurnell Leisure Centre, 29 Ruislip Road East, London W13 0AZ.
Rapid testing kits can no longer be picked up for free at local pharmacies, libraries and community centres.
We still recommend that you get tested before you go to places with a lot of people, or areas that have little ventilation. You can purchase these at most pharmacies and online.
If you are offered a vaccine, please make sure you get it - vaccines offer the best protection for you and your family against COVID-19. Find out more about the COVID-19 vaccines.
COVID-19 vaccines are now available for everyone aged 12 or over. If you are aged 12 or over, you can walk-up to CP House in Ealing or selected local pharmacies and get your vaccine or you can make a booking on the NHS website. You do not need to wait to be contacted.
The COVID-19 vaccination is also being offered to 5 to 11 year olds as a lower dose. Throughout May, there are dedicated pop-up vaccination clinics in Ealing or can make a booking on the NHS website.
