Social distancing will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus by reducing the social interaction between people.
Avoid contact with someone who is displaying symptoms of coronavirus - these symptoms include high temperature and/or new and continuous cough;
avoid non-essential use of public transport, varying your travel times to avoid rush hour, when possible
work from home, where possible - your employer should support you to do this.
avoid large gatherings, and gatherings in smaller public spaces such as pubs, cinemas, restaurants, theatres, bars, clubs
avoid gatherings with friends and family – keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media
use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services.
Everyone should be trying to follow these measures as much as possible.
