We’ve now been told that the single most important thing people in the UK can do to protect the NHS, fight coronavirus and save lives, is to stay at home
Reducing day-to-day contact with other people, reduces the spread of the infection. That is why the Government has introduced three new measures:
  1. Requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes.
  2. Closing non-essential shops and community spaces.
  3. Stopping all gatherings of more than two people in public.

Staying at home means you should only leave the house for one of four reasons:

●     shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
●     one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household
●     any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
●     travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home

These four reasons are exceptions - even when doing these activities, we’ve been told to minimise time spent outside of the home and ensure we are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of our own households.
