COVID-19 case numbers are rising rapidly across the whole of the UK and in other countries. We must act now to control the spread of the virus. The single most important action we can all take to fight coronavirus is to stay at home, to protect the NHS and save lives.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of the infection. That is why, from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, you must:

  1. Stay at home, except for specific purposes.
  2. Avoid meeting people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.
  3. Close certain businesses and venues.

The NHS continues to advise regular handwashing and cough etiquette, and that you should also self-isolate (stay at home) for 10 days if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • high temperature (feeling hot to touch on the chest or tummy)
  • a cough
  • difficulty breathing
  • or loss of smell or taste (also called anosmia)

If you do have any of the symptoms above, do not go to your GP, a pharmacist or a hospital. If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse, or you do not get better after 10 days, please call 111 or visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.

The Government says we can all help control the virus if we do the following:

  • Wash hands – keep washing your hands regularly
  • Cover face – wear a face covering in enclosed spaces
  • Make space – stay at least 2 metres apart – or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions
  • NOT meet more than one person outside of your support bubble or people you live with

Please consult the local restrictions page to see if any restrictions are in place in your area.
