The removal of remaining legal restrictions to protect the public from Covid-19 will take place on Monday 19 July.
The lifting of restrictions includes the removal of the legal limits on meeting others, on the types of businesses that can operate and on the wearing of face coverings, while guidance will remain in place to advise the public on ways to stop the spread of the disease.
Travel to red list countries will continue to be regulated, while the rules will be eased for fully vaccinated travellers returning from ‘Amber list’ countries. Some safeguards will remain in place in settings such as hospitals.
PCC for Surrey Lisa Townsend has urged Surrey residents to continue to practise personal hygiene, respect others’ space and get tested regularly.
If you experience symptoms of coronavirus, limit all contact with others. Do not go to a GP, Pharmacy or hospital.
For information, see the NHS online pages.

In March 2020, the Office of the PCC launched a Coronavirus Support Fund that has committed over £430,000 in additional funding to services during the pandemic.
