Lockdown and Self Isolation
England is in another national lockdown.
We have all been told that to reduce the spread of Coronavirus we must stay at home except for very limited reasons, such as: to shop for essentials, access medical or care services, work (if this cannot be done from home) or to exercise.
This page contains information about the new lockdown rules, what self-isolating means and when we must self-isolate.
It is very important that we follow government advice to protect ourselves and others from Coronavirus.
There is now a new type of Coronavirus that spreads more easily.
For the latest information on the Coronavirus vaccines being used, please see our Coronavirus News and Updates page.
