Lockdown Rules and Guidelines

January 5, 2021

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement last night, England will enter another national lockdown from the early hours of tomorrow although everyone is urged to follow guidance from now.

This new lockdown see the return and reinforcement of the ‘Stay At Home’ messaging which was originally introduced in March when measures were first put in place.

You MUST stay at home, other than for:

– Shopping for food and essential items
– Employment if you cannot work from home
– Exercise, either within your household, your support bubble or one other person if you are alone
– Seeking medical help, receiving a test or receiving a vaccine

Do NOT travel unless necessarily

Those who were told to shield during the original lockdown should once again do so as they wait for their vaccine.

Schools shall remain open for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. ALL other children will learn remotely until February.
Alternative arrangements will be made for summer exams.

Early year settings, such as nurseries, will still be accessible for childcare.

More devices will be distributed to schools and education settings to support home education and extra support will be provided for students on free schools meals.

By the middle of February, the Government are aiming for everyone in the 4 top priority groups to be vaccinated – 13.5 million people. This includes:

– all care home residents and their carers
– those over 70
– all frontline health and social care workers
– everyone who is clinically extremely vulnerable

With the most vulnerable vaccinated, this will enable us to start lifting many of the restrictions we have in place, and get back to some sort of normal.
