Please find below a summary of the guidance and information we have received recently relating to the Coronavirus. For the most up to date Government Guidance, please visit


Stay at home guidance


The Government has asked that people stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus. You may only leave your home to:

  • Shop for basic necessities such as food and medicine, as infrequently as possible

  • Take exercise, such as a run, walk or cycle, but this must be done alone or with members of your household

  • Deal with any medical need, to avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to give blood

  • Provide care or to help a vulnerable person

  • Travel to work, but only where you cannot work from home


Stay at home guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection gives you the main government messages whether you live alone or with other people.

When you do leave your home you must observe the two-metre social distancing rule.
