Boris Johnson has imposed another national lockdown for England, due to coronavirus cases increasing rapidly and the new variant of the virus spreading fast.
We all must stay at home to protect ourselves, each other and our NHS. You can only leave your home:
- To shop for essentials
- To go to work "if you absolutely cannot work from home"
- To exercise
- To seek medical assistance
- To get a COVID-19 test
- To escape domestic abuse
The full list of restrictions can be found on the Government's website.
