Stay at home rules extended for at least three weeks

At the daily briefing at No 10 yesterday foreign secretary Dominic Raab confirmed that the strict measures in place to stay at home and away from others would continue for at least another three weeks.

Government advice remains to:

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
