Living with COVID-19
The government has published its plan for living with Covid-19. From today, 24th February :
You are no longer legally required to self-isolate if you test positive
You are no longer legally required to self-isolate if you are an unvaccinated contact
You are no longer advised to test for 7 days if you are a fully vaccinated close contact
West Sussex Viewpoint
Anyone testing positive must NOT take part in any short mat activity - roll-ups, matches or competitions.
Rationale: The short mat population consists of many vulnerable adults with underlying medical conditions. It is everyone's duty of care to protect others.
Horsham is the COVID capital of the UK and West Sussex has too many COVID cases. We must not put others at risk. Masks should still be worn in communal areas.
