From Tuesday 5th January everyone must stay at home, and only leave home for specific reasons, such as:
- Shopping for essential items and medicine
- Travel to work, but only if you cannot work from home
- Seek medical help, get tested or get vaccinated
- To escape domestic abuse or escape serious harm
Full details of what you can and cannot do are available on the Government’s website.
Colleges, primary and secondary schools will remain open only for vulnerable children and children of critical workers. All other children will learn remotely until at least the February half term. Early Years settings such as nurseries currently remain open. If you are clinically extremely vulnerable, you should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential. You should not attend work.
