Due to the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic the Government has asked us all to play our part and practice social distancing by staying inside and avoiding all unnecessary contact with others where possible. 

By social distancing we can all help to slow the spread of the virus and give our healthcare workers the best chance of being able to save lives. This is an emergency situation unlike anything we have experienced before and by making small and temporary changes to our lifestyles we can help fight the virus.

We all have people in our lives who need protecting, such as our grandparents, parents, those close to us who may have underlying conditions, pregnant people and young children. By choosing not to spend time with your friends and partners you are helping to protect the most vulnerable in our society and those most important to you in your life.

Over the coming weeks we will provide news pieces, factsheets and opinion pieces to keep you informed on how to stay safe and healthy during these times. We understand that these are uncertain times for everyone, but by working together to follow Government guidelines we can help to slow the spread of the virus and save lives.
