The basics

The latest information on COVID-19 cases in Milton Keynes can be found on the GOV.UK dashboard. The data on this dashboard is interactive and updated daily.

You can also view the full COVID-19 snapshot as of 20 October 2021 (data reported up to 17 October 2021).

On 16 August, the rules on self-isolating as a contact changed for people who are fully vaccinated, and for under 18s. Those not fully vaccinated will still need to isolate if they are contacts, and everyone will still have to isolate if they test positive.

Although most legal restrictions have been lifted at step 4, and many people have been vaccinated, it is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated.

COVID-19 will be a feature of our lives for the foreseeable future, so we need to learn to live with it and manage the risk to ourselves and others.

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable, you could be at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19.

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable, you should continue to follow the guidance for people who are clinically extremely vulnerable.

If you have been vaccinated against COVID-19

To help protect yourself and your friends, family, and community you should continue to follow all of the Government guidance, even if you’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

If you have any of these symptoms please self-isolate and get a test.
