During the Pandemic please keep yourself and others safe by maintaining your physical distance from others – science suggests at least 2m to be on the safe side. You can now travel for daily exercise, to work if you cannot work from home or to assist someone more vulnerable. However, you should only meet one person from a different household, but it would obviously be safer if you avoid contact with other people completely, despite the government’s apparent return to herd immunity.

 Please remember that, should you catch the virus it is not only yourself that you are putting yourself at risk of illness and even death.
