To avoid the further spread of COVID-19, please limit your contact with people from outside your household and do not meet anyone you don't live with indoors.
If you develop any symptoms of COVID-19, self-isolate at home immediately with other members of your household and book yourself a test. You must all stay at home while you wait for the result to prevent possibly spreading the virus to others.
