You must stay at home.You may leave the home to:

- go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
- exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
- meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
- seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)

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 not leave your home unless necessary.
Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household or bubble.
Testing & the vaccine
Most people with the virus have at least one of these symptoms: a fever, a new, continuous cough, loss of sense of taste or smell. If you are unsure use the NHS Coronavirus online symptom checker, or call 111.
The NHS is coordinating the Covid-19 vaccination. When it's your turn the NHS will invite you for your vaccine. We kindly ask that you do not call your GP, local hospital or other NHS service.
