Latest Restrictions for the Bradford area

Similarly to the rest of England, Bradford has moved to ‘Plan B’ restrictions following the emergence of COVID-19’s ‘Omicron’ variant.

These restrictions include:

  • Members of the public must show ‘Covid Passes’, demonstrating they are fully vaccinated, have had a negative PCR test in the past 48 hours, or have a medical exemption; to gain access to any events with 10,000 or more attendees, such as live sporting or musical events, amongst many others.
  • Face coverings are now compulsory on all forms of public transport, shops and supermarkets, places of worship and most other indoor venues. For a full list, click here.
  • Anyone who can work from home is expected to do so; and those unable to work remotely are asked to take regular lateral flow tests, and self-isolate if instructed.

Vaccinations

In line with current medical advice, everyone over the age of 18 who has previously received two vaccinations against COVID-19 is entitled to a booster jab before the end of 2021. For more information on booster vaccines against COVID-19, click here.

Meanwhile, anyone aged 12 and over, who has previously had one or zero jabs against COVID-19, is entitled to a first or second vaccination; although with a 12 week gap between doses for those under 18, and an 8 week gap for those aged 18 and over.

Where can I get a Covid-19 Test in Bradford?

There is currently a mix of ways and locations you can get tested if you live in Bradford. There are mobile units that may be in your area as well as the fixed drive-through and walk-in centres. If you can not get to any of these places and need a test you can also order a test through the post.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Most people with COVID-19 will have at least one of these symptoms:
• A high temperature.
• A new, continuous cough.
• A change in sense of taste or smell.
If you have any of these symptoms, you should have a test.

However, with a significant percentage of people catching COVID-19 ‘asymptomatically’ (carrying the disease without showing symptoms); anyone who regularly uses public transport, frequently works in the workplace or meets people in public is encouraged to test regularly and follow any instructions from NHS Test and Trace.
