Please stay at home unless it is absolutely essential. The Government have stated that the only reasons you may leave home are:

  • to go to work (but work from home if possible);
  • to shop for groceries, medicine and other essentials (infrequently);
  • to exercise outside (once a day);
  • to provide care or help a vulnerable person or
  • for any medical need.

Remember to wash your hands more often than normal, for 20 seconds each time with soap and water and avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. Remember that you can still spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

You can read the latest information from the Government and sign up for alerts at Gov.uk: Coronavirus.
