The government has announced a new slogan for the next stage of the fight against coronavirus – but it has not been widely welcomed.
The longstanding official guidance to “stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives” has been amended to “stay alert, control the virus, save lives”.
The BBC website has some more information about what this means for the public in terms of going back to work, school, shopping and socialising.
The official advice is as follows:
We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
- stay at home as much as possible
- work from home if you can
- limit contact with other people
- keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
- wash your hands regularly
Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
