You must limit contact to your household (the people you live with) and stay at least 2 metres apart from everyone else.

Do not visit any other household or allow visitors in your home.

If you live alone, you can have close contact with only one other household.

Only go out for essential reasons, such as:

  • helping vulnerable people
  • exercise and physical activity

Work remotely, where possible.
