The Government has introduced emergency legislation response to the coronavirus pandemic.

You must not leave your home without a reasonable excuse to do so.

What is a reasonable excuse includes (but isn't limited to):

  • ​​The need to obtain food or medical supplies, for your household or the household of a vulnerable person who is unable to do so themselves;
  • The need to take exercise alone or with members of your household;
  • The need to seek medical assistance (including for your mental health);
  • The need to travel to work, or to provide voluntary or charitable services if it is not possible to do that from home.

For more information on the emergency legislation see our information page.
