HM Government of Gibraltar, under advice from the Director of Public Health, expects a rise in incidence of COVID-19 as Gibraltar continues to ease restrictions. The Director of Public Health advises caution, particularly for those who are vulnerable and their friends, families, colleagues and carers.

Vaccination, coupled with good hand and respiratory hygiene continue to be the most effective ways to protect yourself and your loved ones. This means wearing a mask if necessary, catching coughs and sneezes in a tissue and washing hands regularly. To book a vaccine appointment, please call 200 66966 between 9:00am and 3:00pm.

The Director of Public Health has published a COVID-19 self-help toolkit to provide information and practical advice. This is available online at https://bit.ly/36Gf9De.

The Director of Public Health, Dr Helen Carter, said: ‘As Gibraltar continues to roll out its Exit Strategy we can expect the incidence of COVID-19 to rise. It is important that the public take personal responsibility for their choices and continue to take reasonable measures to protect themselves, including being cautious around vulnerable friends and family.’
