Social distancing

Detailed guidance about social distancing for everyone 

This guidance is for everyone. It advises on social distancing measures we should all be taking to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19). It is intended for use in situations where people are living at home, with or without additional support from friends, family and carers.

This important Government guide provides the latest Government advice about social distancing, with particular information for those who are at increased risk of severe illness - for example people over 70 years of age, those who are pregnant and those with certain underlying health conditions. The guide contains a list of those conditions and clear advice on how to manage.
