What the government is now telling you to do

 

Stay alert

 

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

 

 

Stay at home as much as possible

Work from home if you can

Limit contact with other people

Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)

Wash your hands regularly

 

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

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

On 23rd March, the Government introduced three new measures to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, these were:

 

For people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes

For non-essential shops and community spaces to close

For all public gatherings of more than two people to cease

 

These measures are effective immediately and the relevant authorities, including the police, have been given the Powers to enforce them

The Government will look again at these measures in three weeks, and relax them if the evidence shows this is possible.
