Government announces national lockdown


The Government has from Monday, 4th January announced a national lockdown for England to help tackle soaring rates of coronavirus cases.

We must stay at home to help save lives and protect the NHS, leaving home only to:

  •  Shop for basic necessities
  • Go to work, or provide voluntary or charity services, if you cannot do so from home
  • Exercise on your own, with your household or support bubble or one other person – this should be limited to once per day, and in your local area
  • Meet your support bubble or childcare bubble, where necessary
  • Seek medical assistance (including Covid tests) or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm, including domestic abuse
  • Attend education or childcare, for those eligible
