Those of you who are staying at home and only leaving for occasional, ESSENTIAL trips out to care for those who need it, to go to the supermarket, and for key workers to go to work – well done and thank you. Think of it as being ‘safe at home’ rather than ‘stuck at home’.
HOWEVER there are still far too many people out and about when the country is supposed to be in lockdown.
Those spoken to who are not out for essential reasons can be given a £60 fine by police.
Please, please, please consider whether you really need to leave the house and only do so for the ESSENTIAL reasons specified by the government.
We all have a part to play in preventing the spread of Covid19.
Stay at home, Protect the NHS and Save lives.
