info COVID-19 and council-run facilities

In line with the latest government guidelines, you are no longer required to wear face coverings or observe social distancing in council-run facilities. However, we appreciate that you may wish to continue to wear face coverings when visiting for your own safety - and you are welcome to do so.

The government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.

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 twice a week 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.
