Official Government advice:


More details can be found on the Public Health England’s guidelines on social distancing.


  • You should wash your hands as often as possible; especially when returning to your home , and avoid touching your face (as much as possible).
  • If you have opened / shut or even touched a gate should definitely wash your hands when at home or even before.

Social distancing is important because coronavirus spreads when an infected person coughs small droplets - packed with the virus - into the air.


These can be breathed in, or cause an infection if you touch a surface they have landed on.


The less time people spend together, the less chance there is of this happening.


Everyone is now being told to follow social distancing measures, especially the over-70s, pregnant women and adults normally eligible for a flu jab.
