NHS COVID Pass
An NHS COVID Pass shows your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination details or test results. This is your COVID-19 status. You may be asked to show your pass to get into some events, where the COVID Pass is being trialled, or to travel abroad. Always check the entry requirements for the venue or the country you're visiting. If you're planning to travel abroad or want to know more about your COVID-19 status:

Supporting your recovery after COVID-19
Supporting your family member, relative or friend following their COVID illness can be challenging. You may be providing emotional and physical help in addition to all your other responsibilities. This can be a very stressful time for you both and we hope the information within this website will give you reassurance and support during their recovery
National restrictions begin in England from 5 November
CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) REGULATIONS: UPDATE From the 28th September 2020 it is a legal requirement for everyone in England to self-isolate if they test positive for COVID -19, if they display symptoms, or are contacted officially through the track and trace system. Fines will also be introduced from that date for anyone breaching self-isolation rules, starting at £1000 for a first offence, and increasing for each subsequent offence, up to £10,000 for repeat offences and/ or the most serious of breaches, including for those preventing others from self-isolating. In that context, any employer who allows or requires an employee to come to work when they are legally required to self-isolate will all be liable to fines up to £10,000 on a similar scale. There is a legal obligation on employees to disclose to employers if their circumstances require self-isolation. See the gov website here for more information.
In addition, again from 28th September 2020, the law has been clarified to confirm that anyone under self-isolation rules arising out of track and trace contacts, and who returns a negative test during self -isolation, must remain in self-isolation for the minimum defined period as symptoms may only show later in that period. However, where an individual or household member has a negative result having displayed symptoms, been tested and has not officially been contacted by Track and Trace, then self-isolation is no longer required. See the gov website here for more information.
