National COVID-19 restrictions

Coronavirus cases are rising rapidly across the whole of the UK. We must act now to control the spread of the virus.

The single most important thing we can all do, to prevent the spread of coronavirus, is to stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection.

That is why, from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, the Government is taking the following action:

  • Requiring people to stay at home, except for specific purposes
  • Preventing gathering with people you do not live with, except for specific purposes
  • Closing certain businesses and venues
