Last night (Sunday), the UK Government issued another Coronavirus (Covid-10/C19) statement, clarifying that “people should avoid travelling unless it is essential”.
The statement reads,
“Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays.
“People should remain in their primary residence.
“Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.”
See the Government Website for more information.
Government Covid-19 guidance: Stay alert and stay safe
Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently (video tips).
It is recommended that you maintain at least a two metre gap (about 6.5ft) from people who are not from your household.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service that can tell if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
