Emergency management

Emergency closures

What you need to do

To help protect yourself and others, when you leave home you must:

  • wash hands - keep washing your hands regularly
  • cover face - wear a face covering over your nose and mouth in enclosed spaces, if you’re able to
  • make space - stay at least a metre away from people not in your household

If you’re feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days.

There’s full guidance on the government website.
