COVID-19

North East Lincolnshire is in on the journey out of national lockdown.

The single most important action we can all take is to stay alert and follow the restrictions in place to continue to protect the NHS and save lives. You should follow this guidance and as restrictions are eased they will be updated to reflect new rules.

The government has published the COVID-19 Response - Spring 2021 setting out the roadmap out of the current lockdown for England.

Some of the rules on what you can and cannot changed on 12 April. However, many restrictions remain in place. You must not socialise indoors with anyone you do not live with, unless you have formed a support bubble with them, or another exemption applies. You should continue to work from home if you can and minimise the number of journeys you make where possible. You should get a test and follow the stay at home guidance if you have COVID-19 symptoms.

From 12 April:

COVID-19 Vaccine scams

There are many scams going round to do with COVID-19 whether about the vaccination, testing or financial support. Please share this with your family and friends as anyone can become a target of scams.

Throughout this pandemic cyber criminals are preying on the fears people have of coronavirus and sending ‘phishing’ text messages that try and trick users into clicking on a bad link. Messages claim to be from a known entity, such as the NHS, the UK government or the NHS Test and Trace Service.

Further advice and information is available on how to protect yourself. You need to be able to spot a scam, verify the message and take action if you receive a scam text, phone call or email message. Find out more about COVID-19 scams on our Countering NHS Fraud web page
