Government advice

COVID-19: Stay at Home

View the full up-to-date list of government guidelines

You can only leave your home: 

- to shop for food or medicine 
- for any medical need like going to the doctor or hospital
- to travel to and from work if absolutely necessary and only if you cannot work from home 

You can also leave your home once a day for exercise, but you must do so alone or with members of your household. Do not meet up with friends or family and make sure you stay at least two metres away from other people and follow the social distancing rules. 

Health and stay at home advice

Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough

Anyone with these symptoms should stay at home and self-isolate for seven days from the onset of the symptoms.

If you think you have symptoms or you might have been exposed to the virus when travelling, visit the NHS 111 online assessment tool. Only call 111 if you have severe and urgent symptoms.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.
