Stay at home.

The single most important action you can take is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

You should only leave the house for very limited reasons:

  • Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, as infrequently as possible.
  • One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household.
  • Any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid risk of harm, provide care or help a vulnerable person.
  • Travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home.
