National coronavirus lockdown in England

A new national lockdown is now in force across England.

The coronavirus remains a significant threat to our health and we all have duty to minimise its spread as much as we can.

There are three simple actions we must all do to keep on protecting each other.

You must:

  • stay at home. This is the single most important action we can all take to protect the NHS and save lives

  • not leave your home unless necessary

  • stay two metres apart from anyone not in your household or bubble

Stay at home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.

For the latest coronavirus measures, please visit the government website.

The North Yorkshire County Council website has the latest information on how the virus is affecting our district.

Health information

The symptoms of the coronavirus are a new, continuous cough (this is where you cough a lot in an hour or have several coughing episodes), a fever (where your temperature goes above 37.8 degrees) and a loss of smell or taste.

If you, or someone you live with, has these symptoms you, or they, must immediately self-isolate at home to stop the risk of spreading the virus to other people. You should then book a coronavirus test.

There's more information on the NHS website.

The NHS Covid-19 app is also available for download from the Apple App Store or Google Play store.
