Stay at home to stop Coronavirus spreading

Everyone must stay at home under the current Government direction to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need
  • or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home

* These are official guidelines from the NHS 

How to stop infection spreading
