Social Distancing Measures (Updated 23rd March 2020)

The Government has announced new social distancing measures to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce transmission.

  • Stay at home, except for very limited purposes (food, health reason, essential work) 

  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people

  • Closure of non-essential shops and community spaces

  • Stopping all gatherings of more than two people

  • Work from home (your employer should support you to do this)

  • Use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services.

Every citizen must comply with these new measures. The relevant authorities, including the police, will be given the powers to enforce them – including through fines and dispersing gatherings.
