Situation in the UK

What you need to do

Coronavirus (COVID‑19) is spreading fast. England is in lockdown. Do not leave your home unless necessary.

If you have to leave home:

  • wash your hands regularly – for 20 seconds with soap and water
  • cover your face – wear a face covering (if you can)
  • make space – stay at least two metres away from anyone you don’t live with

If you have any coronavirus symptoms, isolate immediately and get a test. 

Find out more on the GOV.UK website.

The GOV.UK website is being updated daily  with the number of confirmed cases in the UK, including a breakdown of the number of cases in each NHS region. 

You can also search for case information in your local area by using the GOV.UK interactive map, where you can also search by postcode. 

Public Health England has a blog which is being updated regularly, including common and frequently asked questions around coronavirus and lockdowns.
