Coronavirus, also known as Covid-19, has had an impact on the whole world affecting every country, every area, every street and every home.
The UK Government continue to regularly release information on lockdowns and restrictions put in place to reduce the infection rate of Coronavirus across the country. As these announcements are made we'll be sharing information and resources to help answer some of your questions.
PATHWAY OUT OF LOCKDOWN
There is light at the end of the tunnel after the Government announced it's plans to ease lockdown restrictions in England with the view of a 'normal life' from 21st June 2021
From 4th January 2021 a National Lockdown has been in force with tougher restrictions on the country to bring down the Coronavirus infection rate. This means that you must stay at home except for specific purposes, such as food, work, education, exercise or medical reasons.

Excercising, eating health foods and getting a good night's sleep can support overall health.
FIND TIME TO RELAX
Do activities you enjoy to help ease stress and anxiety.
Set goals for yourself with a daily or weekly routine to help fulfil a sense of achievement.
WHO ELSE CAN HELP IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING?
