The best advice we are repeatedly being given is to
stay in our bubble.
Look for ways to stay in your bubble, not for loopholes to get out of it.
Act like you have the virus.
Stay home except for essential supplies, such as food or medicine. Exercise outdoors is OK, but avoid all contact with others: try a friendly wave or a conversation from different sides of the street.
If you’re out and about on a walk beware what you touch! The handrails and metal barriers at the footbridge could transmit the virus.

Keep in touch with your neighbours and shout out if you need help. We have a fabulous community, let’s get through this in the best of health!
