National lockdown: stay at home
The Prime Minister has announced an immediate national lockdown to control the spread of coronavirus as rates rapidly increase across London and the country.
You must now stay at home, and only leave your home for specific reasons, such as:
- shopping for essential items and medicine
- to travel to work, but only if you can’t work from home
- to seek medical help, get tested or get vaccinated
- to escape domestic abuse
If you have symptoms of coronavirus, no matter how mild, it is important that you get a test.
