COVID-19 and BAME Communities

COVID 19 is a virus that affects all people, but there is clear evidence that Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities are at higher risk of dying from COVID-19 than the rest of the population.

The reasons that COVID-19 disproportionately affects BAME people are closely connected to the social and economic inequalities that exist in today society. These inequalities include housing, education, employment and access to healthcare.

It is important that the government, local authorities, institutions and individuals recognise these inequalities and work to change this.

REN COVID-19 Helpline for BAME communities now LIVE

Our Covid Prevention Project aims to ensure that people across the district have improved access to information about the virus in a range of languages and accessible formats. REN have set up the Covid-19 Helpline to break down further barriers to accessing information around Covid for those people from BAME and CEE backgrounds who are most at risk but who are not literate or E-literate.

National Restrictions

As of 19th July 2021, most COVID-19 National Restrictions have been lifted. 

You must still self-isolate if you have had a positive test result. You no longer need to self-isolate if you have been in close contact with someone who has a positive test result, but should get a PCR test yourself to check you have not been infected. 

It is still encouraged to wear face coverings in crowded public places, and to maintain social distancing if possible.

Most children and young people aged 12 to 17 are currently being offered a 1st dose only. 

Booster vaccine doses will be available on the NHS for people most at risk from COVID-19 who have already had 2 doses of a vaccine.
