Government advice on who should attend

Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 (a new continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell) should not attend. Individuals who are self-isolating due to a possible/confirmed case of COVID-19 in their household or because they have been requested to do so by NHS Test & Trace should not attend.

Those aged 70 or over, regardless of medical condition, are at increased risk of severe disease from COVID-19 and are currently advised to take particular care to minimize contact with others outside of their household. They should consider carefully whether they should attend. However, it is up to the individual to make their own decision, at their own risk.
