The lockdown will last until the “7 May, at least” whereby the government will review measures.
The lockdown rules are clear, you are only allowed to leave your home, to buy essential supplies such as food and medicine, and to do one form of exercise a day close to home.
You are allowed to travel to work if you cannot work from home, and for any medical need, including to donate blood or provide help to a vulnerable person.
