Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

(updated May 20th)

SOCIAL DISTANCING SAVES LIVES

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert.

This means you MUST:

  • Stay at home as much as possible;
  • Work from home if you can;
  • Limit contact with other people;
  • Keep your distance if you go out and stay at least 2 metres (3 large steps) away from other people;
  • Wash your hands regularly;
  • Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

 

Read the Prime Minister’s address for the latest information.

You can get advice from the 111 ONLINE service - see link below
