Stay at home as much as possible

There are only a few specific reasons to leave your home, including:

- For work, if you cannot work from home

- Going to shops to get things like food and medicine, or to collect things you've ordered

- To exercise or spend time outdoors

- For any medical reason, to donate blood, avoid injury or illness, escape risk of harm, provide care or help a vulnerable person

When outside your home, it's important to try to stay 2 metres away from anyone you do not live with.
