We can all play our part to beat the virus by:

  • Washing our hands regularly
  • Staying two metres apart
  • Wearing a face covering when we are indoors where we might come into contact with others, such as public transport, taxis, shops, museums and places of worship
  • Not visiting, or having visitors from, other households
  • Staying away from crowds and avoiding close contact with others, such as handshakes and hugs
  • Keeping up with guidance
  • Isolating for 10 days and getting a test if we have symptoms of COVID-19
  • Following the advice of the Test and Trace service if we have come into contact with someone with the virus.
