The latest news from Calderdale Council
Restrictions are ending but COVID-19 isn’t. Calderdale people are encouraged to remain cautious, be kind and help each other to stay safe.
Although most COVID restrictions lifted from 19 July, we can keep showing kindness and looking out for each other by continuing to take precautions in certain situations and following the five big things:
- Give others space
- Wear a mask in high risk places
- Get tested and self-isolate if you have symptoms
- Mix outside / let air in
- Get both doses of the vaccine
This will help to protect vulnerable people and support those who look after us and keep us going by delivering important services, from health and care to public transport and shops.
