Read guidance on the following, on GOV.UK:

Protect your loved ones

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

Help protect each other: please continue to follow social distancing rules with other residents, along with washing your hands regularly throughout the day.

Households are still encouraged to take symptom-free tests twice a week to help prevent further outbreaks of the virus.

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.

During the current situation, our priority is to continue providing essential council services, while protecting the health and wellbeing of our residents.

Check the service updates page for details of sites, buildings and services.

The current situation means we may have difficulties in handling your calls. If you do not need to speak to someone urgently, you can apply, book, report or pay for lots of council services online.
