  1. Supporting the Roma community through Covid-19 report

Roma Support Group conducted a questionnaire between February and April 2021 to assess how the Covid-19 pandemic had affected the daily lives of their clients, and whether they were able to access support when needed.

Their report includes good practice recommendations on public health engagement and adapting existing support to changing community needs.

The government is continuously updating their guidance for people travelling to England.

People who qualify as fully vaccinated for travel to England can book a lateral flow test for use from 24 October instead of a PCR test.
