Stay alert

We can all help control coronavirus if we all stay alert. This means:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly

Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

COVID-19 travel guidance

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) currently advises British nationals against all but essential international travel. Travel to some countries and territories is currently exempted. This advice is being kept under constant review.

Travel disruption is still possible and national control measures may be brought in with little notice. Check FCO coronavirus travel guidance.
