New Measures to tackle COVID-19
Last night (23/03/2020) the Prime minister Boris Johnson set out new guidelines to help tackle COVID-19.
The new guidance says people should only leave their homes for one of four reasons:
Shopping for basic necessities such as food and medicine. Shopping trips should be as infrequent as possible
One form of exercise a day such as a run, walk or cycle. This should be done alone or only with people you live with
Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person. This includes moving children under the age of 18 between their parents' homes, where applicable. Key workers or those with children identified as vulnerable can continue to take their children to school
Travelling to and from work, but only where work absolutely cannot be done from home
