Latest update from the government

To help stop coronavirus spreading the government have now said that everyone should stay at home as much as possible.

You can leave home to shop for essentials, exercise, spend time outside or to get medical treatment.

You should only be travelling to work if you have been asked to and cannot work from home (many shops and businesses are still closed).

You can leave your home more than once a day and travel beyond your local area to exercise, especially if this is important to your health.

It is still important to be careful, and only go out when you really need to, to reduce the chance of getting ill or infecting other people. You must follow social distancing rules, which means keeping 2 metres apart from people who are not from your household or someone who supports you.

You can now meet with 1 person that you don't live with, but you must do this outside and keep 2 metres apart.

We have turned step 1 of the government's latest guidance (which is only for people living in England) into an easy read guide for you to use.
