Government update 11/05/2020

On 11th May the government announced an easing of the original restrictions, with the following general instructions.

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.

For full details of what you can now do and not do, please visit the government website.

Government statement 23/03/20

From now, you may only leave home to:

  • Shop for food, which should be done as infrequently as possible with a strong preference for online ordering. All other non-essential shops will be closed (e.g. electronics stores).
  • One form of exercise a day which should be done alone or with your household, but note play parks will be closed.
  • Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person. This includes moving children under the age of 18 between their parents' homes, where applicable. Key workers or those with children identified as vulnerable can continue to take their children to schoo
  • Travelling to and from work, but only where work absolutely cannot be done from home

You may not gather publicly in groups of more than two except for households. This means you should not be meeting friends and family members anywhere.
