Keep your distance

To avoid risks of transmission of COVID-19 and stay as safe as possible, you should always maintain social distancing of 2m with people you do not live with.

By staying at a safe distance you limit the opportunities you have to come in contact with contaminated surfaces and infected people outside your home. COVID-19 spreads easily through physical contact from person to person. This is why it is important to reduce the ways people come in close contact with one another. An effective way to do this is to avoid crowded places where it is difficult to keep a safe space between people.

 

Although the risk of severe illness may be different for everyone, anyone can get and spread COVID-19.

Social distancing is one of the simplest and most effective things you can you do keep yourself, your family and your community safe. The rules around social distancing can be different depending on where you live and your personal and health circumstances; they are also subject to change by the government as virus infection rates increase or decrease.

The best place to stay up-to-date with the latest rules is the Gov.uk website.
