National lockdown: stay at home
Coronavirus (COVID‑19) is spreading fast.
Do not leave your home unless necessary.
1 in 3 people who have the virus have no symptoms, so you could be spreading it without knowing it.
Recent and upcoming changes
National lockdown rules apply in England. Stay at home.
Shielding has resumed in England. If you’re shielding, do not attend work, school, college or university. You can get support if you’re clinically extremely vulnerable, for example priority access to supermarket deliveries.
