You may only leave your home for a limited number of reasons, including:

  • Work, when this cannot be done from home
  • Essential shopping
  • Exercise, once a day in your local area
  • To visit a GP or healthcare provider

Schools, non-essential retail and outdoor leisure facilities are closed.
