The Government has announced a national lockdown.
A national lockdown means that everyone in the country should stay at home and away from other people.
This information explains the rules of the lockdown that will help to keep people safe from COVID-19.
COVID-19 is a new illness that is spreading around the world. It can affect your lungs and breathing.
Many people are getting ill and the NHS is getting very busy.
You must follow these rules to protect the NHS and save lives.
Many people who have caught COVID-19 do not feel ill. They could be spreading the illness without knowing they have it.
To reduce the spread of COVID-19 you need to remember:
Hands – wash your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds.
Face – wear a face covering: when you are inside somewhere, outside when you are near people you don’t usually meet.
Space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with.
