Current advice for everyone

Stay at home to stop Coronavirus spreading

You should only leave the house for very limited purposes :

Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, as infrequent as posible.

One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household.

Any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.

Travelling for work purposes, but only when you cannot work from home.
