On Monday, 12 September, the Government announced the end of the COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic light system).

Most COVID-19 rules have ended. The main change you will see at our libraries, public facilities and venues is that face masks are no longer required.

  • Masks are not required in our libraries, public facilities and venues. Find out more about requirements for mask wearing on the COVID-19 website.
  • There are no limits to how many people can attend an event or public facility (indoor and outdoor).
  • Social distancing from people you don’t know isn’t required but is encouraged wherever you go, as is maintaining good hygiene. Stay home if you feel unwell, and if you have symptoms of COVID-19, call Healthline or your GP for advice on getting tested.
