info COVID-19 and council-run facilities

We appreciate that you may wish to continue to wear face coverings when visiting council-run facilities and we encourage you to do so. 

In line with the latest government guidelines announced on 29 November 2021, unless you are exempt, you must wear a face covering on public transport and in shops.

You'll need to wear a face covering when visiting our Smokefree Advice Centre and symptom-free test centres, unless you’re exempt.

For your safety, we will be maintaining enhanced cleaning in all our facilities and will continue to provide hand sanitisers for your use when visiting.

You will still be able to sign into our buildings using the QR code for track and trace although this is no longer a legal requirement. 

Protect your loved ones

COVID-19 has not gone away, so it’s important to remember the actions you can take to keep yourself and others safe. Everybody needs to continue to act carefully and remain cautious.

If you're meeting friends and family, you can make a personal choice on whether to keep your distance from them, but you should still be cautious.

You should continue to take COVID-19 tests regularly and before high-risk situations to protect yourself and your loved ones.

The infection rate is low in Medway. Let’s keep it that way by taking up free testing via test centres and home test kits.
