You should only leave the house for very limited purposes:

  • Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • Any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • Travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home

How to protect yourself from coronavirus

People most at risk from coronavirus need to take extra steps to avoid getting it. This is known as “shielding”.

It’s recommended you follow this advice for at least 12 weeks.


  • Stay at home at all times – do not leave your home to buy food, collect medicine or exercise
  • Stay at least 2 metres (3 steps) away from other people in your home as much as possible
  • Get food and medicine delivered and left outside your door
  • Prepare a hospital bag, including a list of the medicines you’re taking – in case you need to go into hospital
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • Make sure anyone who comes into your home washes their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • Clean objects and surfaces you touch often (like door handles, kettles and phones) using your regular cleaning products
  • Clean a shared bathroom each time you use it, for example by wiping the surfaces you have touched


  • Do not have visitors in your home, including friends and family, unless they’re providing essential care
  • Do not stop taking any prescription medicines without speaking to your doctor.
