Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for funerals and commemorative events during the coronavirus pandemic – updated 23 November 2021

The Department of Health and Social Care, and the UK Health and Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) updated their guidance on funeral and commemorative events during the coronavirus pandemic on 23 November 2021. The revised guidance 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.
