UPDATE 23/3 – Our documents on NHS guidance on Covid-19 symptoms, how to self-isolate and how to contact the NHS produced on 16/03 are still up to date. On 23/03 the UK Government released additional guidance for the general population. We will update the translated resources as soon as possible.
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
This includes people of all ages – even if you do not have any symptoms or other health conditions.
You can only leave your home:
- to shop for basic essentials – only when you really need to
- to do one form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with
- for any medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person
- to travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary
