The Coronavirus outbreak has affected us all

The single most important action we can all take, in fighting Coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection.

The Government's national lockdown measures   will help to control the spread of the disease.

 

During the current lockdown restrictions you must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary.

You may leave the home to:

  • shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person
     
  • go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
     
  • exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area
     
  • meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
     
  • seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
     
  • attend education or childcare - for those eligible

For more detailed advice - please read the Government's national lockdown measures  .

 

Reducing the spread

By reducing day-to-day contact with other people, you can reduce the spread of the infection.

 

Hands. Face. Space.

Approximately 1 in 3 people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and could be spreading it without realising it.

Remember - ‘Hands. Face. Space.’

  • hands – wash your hands regularly and for at least 20 seconds
     
  • face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
     
  • space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings)

In all circumstances, you should follow the guidance on meeting others safely  .
