Coronavirus (COVID‑19): guidance and support Following the Prime Minister's statement on COVID-19 on Tuesday, we have included all the links to all the government guidance which may be of interest to you as a resident or business owner. The advice is still - stay alert We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
stay at home as much as possible
work from home if you can
limit contact with other people (The more people you have interactions with, the more chance the virus has to spread. Therefore, try to limit the number of people you see - especially over short periods of time.)
keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
wash your hands regularly
