Stay at home
You must stay at home, only leaving for the following very limited purposes:
• Shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible.
• One form of exercise a day – for example, a run, walk or cycle – alone or with members of your immediate household.
• Any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.
• Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.
Protect the NHS
You must stay at home to protect the NHS:
• The NHS only has a limited number of doctors, nurses and specialist equipment.
• We are working around the clock to increase NHS capacity.
• The more people who get sick, the harder it is for the NHS to cope.
• We must slow the spread of the disease so that fewer people are sick at any one time.
You must stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives:
• Police will disperse gatherings of more than two people in public, excluding people you live with.
• Police will issue fines to anyone who does not comply with these rules.
• Police will close all shops that are not essential, as well as playgrounds and places of worship.
Am I an essential business to continue to work or trade?
The rules are:
- Anyone that can work from home should.
- Critical workers in the fight against Covid-19 should go to work.
- Anyone who really can’t work from home can continue to go to work but must keep social distancing unless you are specifically listed as business that must close in this list https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/874732/230320_-_Revised_guidance_note_-_finalVF.pdf
