Until 12 April, everyone is urged to stay in their home wherever possible. Staying at home is the best way to minimise the risk of COVID-19 to your friends, families and communities.
You can buy food and attend medical appointments and even get out for some exercise but you are being asked to do as little as you possibly can.
There are exceptions for some workers in key businesses but for the majority of people, the rule is simple: Stay at home.
All people over the age of 70 and vulnerable people with certain medical conditions must stay indoors in what is known as ‘cocooning’. You can see the guidelines on cocooning here.
