The Government have told everyone to practice ‘social distancing’ to limit the risk of catching or spreading coronavirus, this is difficult if you are homeless. Social distancing means you should only go outside:

  1. To shop for essentials – food and medication, only when you really need to
  2. To do one form of exercise a day – alone or with other people you live with
  3. For any medical need – for yourself or to provide care/help to a vulnerable person

  • You must always stay 2 metres apart from anyone you aren’t living with - this includes people you do not share living spaces with in your accommodation
  • Do not gather in groups of more than two people when outside - the police can fine you if you do not follow these rules
