Here are the major points in regards to COVID-19 restrictions.

From 23/03/2020 people in Britain will be allowed to leave their homes for only “very limited purposes” – shopping for basic necessities;

  • For one form of exercise a day;
  • For any medical need;
  • To travel to and from work when “absolutely necessary”
  • People are warned not to meet friends or family members who they do not live with
  • Shopping is only permitted for essentials like food and medicine, and people are advised to do it “as little as you can”
  • Police have powers to enforce the rules, including through fines and dispersing gatherings
  • All shops selling non-essential goods, such as clothing and electronic stores, are ordered to close
  • Libraries, playgrounds, outdoor gyms and places of worship are to close
  • All gatherings of more than two people in public – excluding people you live with – are banned.
  • All social events, including weddings and baptisms are banned
  • Funerals are not included in the new restrictions.
  • Parks will remain open for exercise but gatherings will be dispersed.
  • Restrictions “under constant review” and will be checked again in three weeks. They will be relaxed “if the evidence shows we are able to”
