Help us keep older people connected this Winter

As many of us start to look forward to the return of festive events and seeing family and friends over the Christmas period, countless older people will be feeling anxious about the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic and the long, dark Winter months ahead. Help us support local older people to Keep Connected this Winter by donating whatever you can to our appeal.

Coronavirus update – 1 December 2021

Following reports of a new strain of coronavirus known as Omicron in the UK, the Government has announced some changes to the current rules. This means:

  • Face coverings are a requirement on public transport, in all shops, and in other settings such as banks and hairdressers. Although face coverings aren't mandatory in other places, you're strongly advised to wear them in any indoor settings.
  • All travellers entering the UK are required to take a PCR test on day 2 and self-isolate until they receive a negative result.
  • Anyone testing positive for coronavirus must self-isolate for 10 days. Close contacts of people testing positive for the Omicron strain will also have to self-isolate even if they are fully vaccinated (Test and Trace will inform you if this applies to you).

Other rules will remain the same, which means:

  • There are no limits on the number of people you can meet up with – indoors or outdoors. This includes life events such as weddings, funerals and large events such as sports matches and festivals.
  • Social distancing is no longer a legal requirement – but it's strongly recommended in places such as hospitals.
  • You're no longer advised to work from home.
  • All businesses can be open.

The Government has also advised taking rapid lateral flow tests before spending time in crowded spaces or visiting people who are at more risk of becoming seriously ill with coronavirus.
