Keeping safe indoors

Advice about keeping safe indoors

Stay at home

You must not leave or be outside of your home, except for specific purposes. These include: 

  • shopping for food, medical reasons, exercise, education or work
  • You must work from home if you can
  • Avoid travel unless essential
  • Schools and essential shops will remain open

Seeing friends and family

You must not meet socially indoors with family or friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble.

We know how difficult this is, but keeping apart and following these measures is the best way to care for your loved ones; it is not worth the risk of accidentally infecting those closest to you.
