Staying safe

It is really important that you follow the government guidelines while lockdown remains in place:

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • Do not meet others, even friends or family
  • You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
