Businesses and venues can continue to operate, in a Covid-secure manner, other than those required to remain closed by law. If you can, you should work from home.
You can continue to travel to places that are open, for work or to access education, but should reduce the number of journeys you make where possible.
If you are required to travel into an area at a different local Covid alert level (for example to go to work or school), you should follow the guidance for whichever area has the higher alert level.
- If you live in a medium alert area, but work in a high alert area, follow the work advice for the high Covid alert level.
- If you live in a high alert area, but work in a medium alert area, continue to follow the advice for high alert areas.
See the full guidance on high alert restrictions for further details.
