Latest guidance and health advice

England has moved to step 4

Covid-19 remains a threat to our community and we all need to remain cautious and vigilant.

While the national Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, our main priority remains the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone in Luton.

Get a test: everyone living, working or studying in Luton is encouraged to get a twice-weekly free Covid-19 test, whether they have symptoms or not.
