Living and working with Covid

How do I continue protecting my staff and Sandwell business from Covid-19?

The UK is increasingly protected against Covid-19 – with many thanks to a successful vaccination programme. At Think Sandwell we are updating our coronavirus support pages to reflect the government’s shifting focus from reducing prevalance of the virus to learning to live and work alongside it. At every step, we are here for you and your Sandwell business.

Keep up to date with current advice

Here is the latest information from the government on how to stay safe and help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Get vaccinated!

If you haven’t already, get your jabs as soon as you can. Make sure you get both doses plus a booster. The vaccine is your best defence against the virus. You can find details of vaccination clinics and centres in Sandwell from the Black Country and West Birmingham CCG website.

Remember it is still possible to catch and spread Covid-19, even if you are fully vaccinated.

Be aware of exemptions to restrictions

Most UK Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted. However, a media release issued by the NHS Black Country and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group on Monday 31 January 2022 stated that “Hospitals, GP practices and other NHS buildings across the Black Country and West Birmingham will continue using COVID-19 safety measures”. This means people should wear a face covering indoors in health settings, use the hand gel provided and continue to maintain social distancing.
