Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates and advice
Due to a rise in the number of people with coronavirus, the government and relevant local authorities are acting together to control the spread of the virus. From 31 July 2020, Trafford residents - along with residents of Greater Manchester and parts of Lancashire and West Yorkshire - should follow these rules when meeting people who you do not live with.
- You cannot socialise with another household in your home or garden. Household support bubbles are exempt.
- Try not to share a vehicle with those outside of your household unless it is part of a school or work bubble.
- You can only go to pubs, bars and restaurants with members of your own household or support bubble.
- Up to two households (or six people from a number of households) may meet outdoors with social distancing (not in private gardens).
- Places of worship and other settings with strict Covid-secure arrangements remain open.
We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
- stay at home as much as possible
- work from home if you can
- limit contact with other people
- keep your distance from people not in your household (2 metres apart where possible)
- wash your hands regularly
Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
