There are three simple actions we must all do to keep on protecting each other.

  • Wash hands - keep washing your hands regularly
  • Cover face - wear a face covering over your nose and mouth in enclosed spaces
  • Make space - stay at least 2 metres apart - or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions

If you are feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days.

NHS COVID-19 contact tracing app

Information about the contract tracing app and how to download it is available on the NHS website.

Keep caring

As lockdown restrictions are gradually being lifted, everyone needs to take actions to help us all return to a more normal life. Keep caring for one another as Coronavirus has not gone away.

  • Caring is keeping your distance - inside or outside
  • Caring is being responsible - staying isolated if you think you have got symptoms, or been close to someone who has
  • Caring is covering your face - even with no symptoms you might still spread the virus
  • Caring is washing your hands - regularly, when you enter or leave a new place
  • Caring is staying and buying local - to support local businesses and jobs
  • Caring is being considerate - rubbish destroys our countryside, and puts those who clear it up at risk

Comprehensive advice on current government rules are available on the GOV.UK website.
