National Lockdown

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

You must stay at home and only leave for a limited number of reasons, including shopping for basic necessities, for exercise or to go to work where you cannot do so from home. Those with severe underlying health conditions will once more be required to shield.

Colleges, primary and secondary schools will remain open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. All other children will learn remotely until February half term. Early Years settings, such as nurseries, remain open.

You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or are not in a support bubble with (if you are legally permitted to form one).

You may exercise on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble.

Indoor gyms and sports facilities will remain closed. Outdoor sports courts, outdoor gyms, golf courses, outdoor swimming pools, archery/driving/shooting ranges and riding arenas must also close.

If you think you may have any coronavirus symptoms, isolate immediately and book a test today. There is availability at your local walk or drive-through sites that may be closer than you think.

You can book a test online or by calling 119 to get an appointment to visit a test site
