COVID-19 update July 2021
Brighton and Hove are currently experiencing very high numbers of Covid-19 cases. It’s important that we all try and stay safe, and get infection rates back down. National regulations are changing from the 19th of July, however we would encourage you to stick to the following guidance when visiting the surgery or when in public places in the city:
- Wear a face covering inside wherever possible
- Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household or support bubble.
- Where this is not possible, stay 1 metre apart with extra precautions like wearing a face covering
- Wash your hands regularly and for at least 20 seconds.
- Keep public indoor areas well ventilated.
Covid-19 is spreading rapidly among younger people, especially 18-29 year olds. However we can be vulnerable at any age, and any of us with underlying health conditions could be even more seriously affected by the virus. Therefore you can take a Covid-19 test, even if you’re symptom free. There are two walk-in mobile PCR testing units in the city, these are:
- Peace Statue, Hove Seafront 12noon–7pm every day
- Jubilee Square, next to the library Monday-Saturday 10am–5pm and Sunday 11am-5pm
If your test is positive, you’ll need to self-isolate. If you’ll lose pay by having to self-isolate, you can apply for financial help. Practical or wellbeing support from the Brighton & Hove community hub is also available to help with everyday domestic tasks and how you might be feeling.
If you haven’t had your jab yet (or you are due for your second), please don’t hesitate to get this done as soon as possible. It’s safe and most importantly will keep you safe from Covid-19, a virus that can affect any of us hugely, and in unexpected ways. The vaccine is playing a vital role in weakening the link between infection, serious illness and people having to go to hospital from Covid-19. Convenient, no appointment, no documentation vaccination sessions are open now every day in Brighton & Hove. They are at Brighton Racecourse, Hove Lawns, and at the Brighton Centre as well as other mobile locations. All the details of these sessions can be found on this page.
