The Prime Minister has this evening (Monday) announced a full lockdown.
He said, in a pre-recorded statement that, “…without a huge national effort to halt this virus, there will come a point when no health service in the world could cope.
“To put it simply, if too many people become seriously unwell at one time, the NHS would be unable to handle it.”
To prevent the further spread, members of the public must remain indoors for all but essential trips outside.
You are only permitted to leave your home for the following reasons:
- Shopping for essentials (once a day – use delivery services where possible)
- To exercise once a day
- For medical need
- If you’re providing care or helping vunerable person
You must not meet up with friends or family and no unnecessary shopping.
He confirmed that police will have the power to enforce these rules.
All shops and premises not selling essential items are to shut immediately.
Gatherings of more than 2 people are forbidden, all weddings and baptisms cannot take place.
This lockdown will be revised in three weeks time.
