New COVID-19 Variant Areas – Delta Variant

On 21 May the government updated its advice for the New COVID-19 Variant Areas

New COVID-19 Variant Areas – Advice from the government’s website:

If you’re in an area where the new COVID-19 variant is spreading:

This new new variant is sometimes referred to as the Delta variant. It is spreading fastest in:

  • Bedford Borough Council
  • Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council
  • Greater Manchester Combined Authority (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan)
  • Kirklees Council
  • Lancashire County Council (Burnley, Chorley, Fylde, Hyndburn, Lancaster, Pendle, Preston, Ribble Valley, Rossendale, South Ribble, West Lancashire, Wyre)
  • Leicester City Council
  • London Borough of Hounslow
  • North Tyneside Council

The new COVID-19 variant spreads more easily from person to person. To help stop the spread, you should take particular caution when meeting anyone outside your household or support bubble.

In the areas listed above, wherever possible, you should try to:

  • meet outside rather than inside where possible
  • keep 2 metres apart from people that you don’t live with (unless you have formed a support bubble with them), this includes friends and family you don’t live with
  • minimise travel in and out of affected areas
