Latest UK Government advice
The latest UK Government advice is available here.
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
Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
Full guidance on staying at home and away from others
Protect yourself and others from coronavirus
Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has either:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
Check the NHS website if you have symptoms
Coronavirus guidance on what you can and can’t do
All changes will come into effect on Wednesday 13 May. Until then you should follow existing guidance on social distancing.
The Government has set out its plan to return life to as near normal as we can, for as many people as we can, as quickly and fairly as possible in order to safeguard livelihoods, but in a way that is safe and continues to protect our NHS.
The Government has published staying safe outside your home for guidance on what the new rules will mean. These will take effect on Wednesday.
This guidance applies in England – people in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland should follow the specific rules in those parts of the UK.
