Important updated guidance : ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for funerals and commemorative events during the coronavirus pandemic’

24 November 2021

The Department of Health & Social Care and the UK Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) has issued updated guidance for funerals and commemorative events.

The updated guidance now aligns with wider guidance that LFD tests are now taken before a high risk activity rather than twice weekly as before. Advice is given for those that are exempt from isolation to take an LFD test before attending a funeral, as if they are a contact or in quarantine this might change their decision about whether to attend the funeral or not.
