Eco Signs

Covid Update Jan 2022

Omicron is more contagious than previous variants and can still pose a serious health risk for certain people. Keep being considerate – taking the following actions now will minimise disruption to life and the risk at Eco.

Test twice a week

Reminder about the vital importance of testing

Test twice a week. Every week.
Your actions matter.

If you have symptoms. Remember to report all your LFD via the iAuditor App results to both Eco Signs and the NHS.

More info

Wash Hands

Wash hands well and often to avoid contamination

Use hand sanitiser.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Self-isolate if required

It is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated.

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or a positive test result should stay at home and self-isolate immediately. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should arrange to take a PCR test as soon as possible, even if you’ve had one or more doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Face Covering

Wear a face covering when moving around the building (not mandatory)

Fresh Air

Let fresh air in when indoors: keeping windows and doors open increases ventilation and significantly reduces the spread of COVID-19. Please keep them open, particularly in areas which are poorly ventilated or where signs indicate the need to do so.

Get Boosted

Get Boosted Now

Get your booster jab as soon as you’re eligible, and get a free flu jab if you can.



Continue to follow guidance when travelling on public transport, shopping or mixing with people socially to lessen the chances of COVID-19 infections.

The government has announced that the measures put in place under Plan B in England will be lifted. This means:

  • The government is no longer asking people to work from home if they can. People should now talk to their employers to agree arrangements to return to the office.
  • From 20 January: Face coverings will no longer be advised for staff and pupils in secondary school and college classrooms.
  • From 27 January: Face coverings will no longer be advised for staff and pupils in communal areas of secondary schools, nor for staff in communal areas of primaries. Directors of Public Health will only be able to recommend pupils and staff wear masks in communal areas in places where there are outbreaks or where the local public health situation justifies it, and with sign-off from the Education Secretary.
  • From 27 January: There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. The government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet.
  • From 27 January: Venues and events will no longer be required by law to check visitors’ NHS COVID Pass. The NHS COVID Pass can still be used on a voluntary basis.

This guidance will be updated shortly to include more information on these changes. You should continue to follow all of the guidance on this page to keep yourself and others safe.

Government Guidance

The risk of catching or passing on COVID-19 can be higher in certain places and when doing certain activities.

COVID-19 is spread by airborne transmission, close contact via droplets, and via surfaces. Airborne transmission is a very significant way that the virus circulates. It is possible to be infected by someone you don’t have close contact with, especially if you’re in a crowded and/or poorly ventilated space.

Close contact with an infected person is also a significant way COVID-19 is spread. When someone with COVID-19 breathes, speaks, coughs or sneezes, they release particles containing the virus that causes COVID-19. The particles can come into contact with the eyes, nose or mouth or can be breathed in by another person. The particles can also land on surfaces and be passed from person to person via touch.

In general, the risk of catching or passing on COVID-19 is higher in crowded and enclosed spaces, where there are more people who might be infectious and limited fresh air.

In situations where there is a higher risk of catching or passing on COVID-19, you should be particularly careful to follow the guidance on keeping yourself and others safe. Every little action helps to keep us all safer.
