Prime Minister Boris Johnson has confirmed that England will re-enter lockdown.

People across England will immediately be asked to “stay at home”, similar to the message in force back in March 2020.

1. To work if it’s impossible to work from home (for example critical and construction workers)

2. To shop for necessities including food and medicines

3. To exercise – this can include one other person outside of your household, support or childcare bubble. Ideally once a day and locally.

4. To provide care or help to a vulnerable person 

5. To attend medical appointments, seek medical care or flee the threat of harm or domestic abuse

Schools and colleges will be closed. However this excludes children of key workers and the vulnerable.

Early years settings will remain open, and childcare bubbles will still apply.

More soon.
