Coronavirus (COVID-19) information and updates

National lockdown restrictions

You must stay at home. The single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.

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 do so from home
  • exercise locally 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. This means 'avoiding travelling outside of your village, town or the part of a city where you live'. 
  • meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
  • attend medical appointments, and seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
  • attend education or childcare - for those eligible.

Full lockdown restrictions and updates are on GOV.UK.
