Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home

Important - These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.

There is separate advice about:

Symptoms and what to do

Do not leave your home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

    Vaccination Schedule

    When to have vaccinations

    Here's a checklist of the vaccines that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK free of

    charge on the NHS and the ages at which they should ideally be given.

    If you're not sure whether you or your child have had all your routine vaccinations, 

    ask your GP or practice nurse to find out for you. It may be possible to catch up later in life.

    Try to have your vaccinations delivered on time to ensure protection.

    If you're not going to be able to get to the GP surgery when a vaccination is due, talk to your GP,

    as it may be possible to arrange to have the vaccination at a different location.
