Coronavirus - Advice & Information

Coronavirus

 From Wednesday 6th January 2021 the UK is in National Lockdown. 

 

The new guidance means that, from today, you must stay at home. You may only leave your home to:

  • Shop for essential items (such as food or medicine), for yourself or on behalf of a vulnerable person or someone who is self-isolating
  • To seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
  • To go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
  • To exercise with members of your household (or support bubble) or one other person. This should be limited to once per day and you should not travel outside your local area
  • To meet your support bubble or childcare bubble, if you are legally permitted to form one
  • Attend education or childcare, if you are eligible.

The police can take action if you leave home without a ‘reasonable excuse’ and issue you with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £200 for the first offence, doubling to a maximum of £6,400 for repeat offences.

Full guidance on the new national restrictions can be found on the government’s webpage.
