Government Advice

The most recent government advice is: Hands. Face. Space.

This means you should:

  • wash your hands regularly
  • wear a face covering when in an enclosed space
  • stay at least 2 metres apart from other people (or 1 metre if using a face covering or with other preventative measures in place) to create space

 

There is a "rule of 6" in place which limits gatherings to 6 people if they are from different households.

Wandsworth is currently in 'Tier 1', which means that the national restrictions are still in place.


Please read the latest government guidance here to find up-to-date information and answers to lots of potential questions.


Other guidance:

  • Wash your hands, often, for 20 seconds
  • Don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unclean hands
  • Sneeze and cough into a tissue and bin it immediately, then wash your hands
  • Self isolate yourself and your family if you get any symptoms (see here for guidance on how long you should isolate for)
  • Keep in contact with friends and relatives either by phone, message, or video messaging if possible. It is important to make sure your own, and others', mental health and wellbeing is looked after as much as possible during these times.
