HM Government Covid-19 Response: Autumn Winter Plan

15 September 2021

Yesterday afternoon HM Government published the UK Covid-19 Response: Autumn Winter Plan.

‘the last 18 months have shown the pandemic can change course rapidly and unexpectedly and it remains hard to predict with certainty what will happen … In addition, winter is always a challenging time for the NHS.’

The full UK Covid-19 Response: Autumn  Winter Plan document can be obtained from the gov.uk website.

The national CofE have issued the following statement, published on their coronavirus guidance page.

‘We welcome the publication of the Government's Autumn and Winter plan, recognising the very positive effects of the vaccination campaign and also the ongoing risks posed by Covid-19. We note the Government's commitment that communal worship, weddings, funerals and other commemorative events would not become subject to vaccination certification, even under 'Plan B'. We will continue to monitor the situation as we move towards Christmas.’
