England has entered a four-week full lockdown to help curb the accelerating spread of coronavirus. Pubs, restaurants and non-essential shops have once again been forced to close their doors and members of the public are ordered to stay at home for the next four weeks in a bid to reverse the spread of Covid-19.
But what does this mean to our service?

Patients living with HIV and concerned about COVID-19
HIV patients are strongly advised to visit the British HIV association website which has extensive information on COVID-19 – BHIVA COVID-19 updates
Lockdown has meant most people have had fewer sexual partners but it’s important to think about safer sex and remember sexual health services are still available to provide support:
Please remember: COVID 19 is not a sexually transmitted infection, however it can be passed on through kissing, close contact and having sex. If you or a partner have COVID 19 symptoms you should not kiss or have sex.
Remember we should still be socially distancing but if you are having sex with someone you don’t live with its important to limit the number of partners.
We are experiencing delays in tests being processed and results sent out. Please bear with us.
