 COVID Restrictions end in UK from 24th February 2022

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE   - Guiding, Coaching & Tuition Update

 In a statement in the House of Commons on 21 February Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined the UK Government’s plan for living with COVID-19. The Prime Minister said that the UK Government will continue to work closely with the Devolved Administrations, but the ongoing approach for England will be around four principles, including:

- The removal of all domestic restrictions in law. From Thursday, 24 February:

- The legal requirement to self-isolate following a positive test will end.

-  Routine contact tracing will end. Fully vaccinated close contacts and those under 18 will no longer be asked to test daily for seven days. The legal requirement for close contacts who are not fully vaccinated to self-isolate will be removed.

-  Until 1 April, people who test positive will still be advised to stay at home. After April 1 people with Covid-19 symptoms will be advised to exercise personal responsibility. From 1 April: Free symptomatic and asymptomatic testing for the general public will end. The UK Government will no longer recommend the use of voluntary COVID19-status certification, although the NHS app will continue to allow people to indicate their vaccination status for international travel.

Looking forward to welcoming International visitors to the UK .

"In my honest and humble opinion Stuart Wardle represents all that is good in fly fishing. Professional, organised wholly versed in a vast  array of skills and current techniques; beyond that, he is damn good fly fisher. I guarantee not only will you learn volumes from being in his company: but have more fun than you could ever imagine by a river or lake side . I just wish he lived closer to me so that we could fish more often. "         Charles Jardine -  Internationally renowned Fly Fishing Guru
