Government takes decisive action against new COVID-19 variant

From Tuesday 30 November, face coverings will be mandatory in shops and on public transport, and all travellers returning to the UK will require PCR testing. For more information please go to the government website.

All international arrivals must self-isolate while waiting 2 days to take a PCR test, and must continue to self-isolate until they receive a negative result.

A full transcript of the prime minister’s announcement is online. There's also a version of his announcement on YouTube with BSL.

Our main priority remains the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone in Luton. We encourage everyone to proceed with a great deal of caution and to:

  • get the COVID-19 vaccine when offered, especially the booster
  • follow the rules on face coverings
  • follow the basic guidance of hands / space / fresh air
  • get tested regularly, especially if you're going to crowded spaces
  • limit social contact as much as possible
  • if meeting inside, let as much fresh air in as possible

Go to the government website for more information on keeping safe.
