DCMS Museums and Galleries Sector Coronavirus Bulletin 14 Sept 2021

Below is a link to download the latest PDF coronavirus bulletin from DCMS for the museums and galleries sector, containing links to government information and advice, including:

  • The government’s announcement of its ‘COVID-19 Response – Autumn and Winter Plan 2021’ setting out plans for autumn and winter 2021/22 in England.
  • It consists of Plan A, the preferred approach, and Plan B, the contingency measures.
  • If the data suggests the NHS is likely to come under unsustainable pressure, the Government has prepared a Plan B for England. The Government hopes not to have to implement Plan B, but given the uncertainty, it is setting out details now so that the public and businesses know what to expect if further measures become necessary.
  • The Government’s Plan B prioritises measures which can help control transmission of the virus while seeking to minimise economic and social impacts. This includes:
      • Communicating clearly and urgently to the public that the level of risk has increased, and with it the need to behave more cautiously.
      • Introducing mandatory vaccine-only covid-status certification in certain settings.
      • Legally mandating face coverings in certain settings.
  • People may also be asked once again to work from home if they can, for a limited period.
