The whole of England entered a new national lockdown on 5 January. This means that:
- We must all stay at home except for very limited purposes, such as essential shopping, exercise or work (if you absolutely cannot work from home).
- People must not visit other households, or meet other people they do not live with.
During the coronavirus outbreak, people are recommended to follow government, public health and NHS advice closely. This advice may change as the situation evolves. To assist you, Rutland County Council has set up a community information, advice and support hub.
