Health and NHS Guidance

Stay at Home | Protect the NHS | Save Lives

Social Distancing

On 11 May, the UK government set out its plan to return life to as near normal as we can, for as many people as we can, as quickly and fairly as possible in order to safeguard livelihoods, but in a way that is safe and continues to protect our NHS.

As the UK moves to the next phase in our fight against Coronavirus, the government guidance is to stay alert, control the virus, and in doing so, save lives.

  • You must continue to stay home except for a limited set of reasons but - in line with scientific advice - can take part in more outdoor activities.
  • People and employers should stay safe in public spaces and workplaces by following the government's "Working safely during Coronavirus" guidelines. 
  • You should stay alert when you leave home.

Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough

Check the NHS website if you have symptoms

The UK government’s online service for booking a Coronavirus test is now live, and you can apply for testing here.
