Staying alert and safe - social distancing

The government has set out guidance for how everyone’s actions can reduce the spread of coronavirus in our communities. The guidance explains the measures that will help you to stay safe.

The government has also set out a plan for the response to the next phase of the coronavirus.

Mencap have created an easy read guide to coronavirus which can be downloaded from their website.

At this stage of the government's recovery strategy:

  • you can spend time outdoors, including private gardens and other outdoor spaces, in groups of up to six people from different households, following social distancing guidelines
  • you should go to work if you cannot work from home and your business has not been required to close by law
  • children in early years (age 0 to 5), reception, year 1 and year 6 can return to childcare or school in line with the arrangements made by their school
  • you can be tested as part of the test and trace programme, which will enable us to return to normal life as soon as possible, by helping to control transmission risks

From 13 June, you'll now also be able to:

  • form a ‘support bubble’ with one other household if you live alone or are a single parent with dependent children - in other words, you're in a household where there is only one adult
  • Attend a place of worship for individual prayer

From 15 June:

  • you'll be able to visit more shops and additional outdoor attractions - drive-in cinemas and animal attractions like zoos, farms and safari parks
  • Year 10 and 12 pupils in secondary schools and further education colleges will begin to receive some face to face support
  • you'll have to wear a face covering on public transport
